by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia took part in a live batting practice session Tuesday, ESPNChicago.com reports.

Garcia doesn't have a date set for a rehab assignment and it's still possible the team holds him out from returning to the White Sox for the remainder of the year despite the strides he has made. "I don't think we're going to be pressing that he has to make it here, but if he's totally healthy and he's ready to go I know I would be happy to see him," manager Robin Ventura said. "He can make it here whenever he makes it here. If he can get some time in the minor leagues at some point, just to be able to get there and play, then you figure that out afterward. You expect him to get some time in the minor leagues."

(7/19/2014) White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia has yet to be scheduled for a rehab assignment, though that would be the next step in his recovery from a torn labrum and avulsion fracture, MLB.com reports.

"When you see him do things, you get excited about it," manager Robin Ventura said. "But you don't want to push it to a point where he's getting out ahead of himself, and I know it looks like he's doing pretty good."

Garcia was ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery in April, and the team hasn't changed that timetable. However, the outfielder does look like he'll be able to take part in a rehab assignment at some point before the end of the season.

Avisail Garcia could bat second for Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Promising White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is being considered for the second spot in the lineup, the Chicago Sun-Times has reported.

That placement would be a surprise considering the 250-pound power hitter does not fit the physical mold. But Robin Ventura spoke about the possibility on Wednesday.

"He could very easily [bat third] and there's really an opportunity for him even if we want to bat him second," he said. "He has that kind of approach at the plate. He does have some speed that you can utilize there. There are some ideas of throwing him in there. ... When you look at it, you like what you see when you see [his name] in there. It might happen."

Garcia settled in at the fifth and sixth spots in the order last season with the White Sox, but batted some cleanup toward the end of the year.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Last season, Garcia hit .283/.309/.422 in 244 at-bats.


ChiSox feel they have 'something special' in Avisail Garcia


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) The White Sox are eager to see how outfielder Avisail Garcia continues to develop in 2014 after he hit .304 during a 42-game stint with the club in 2013 following his acquisition from Detroit.

"A full year from Avi Garcia will be interesting, because he can go any direction," teammate Paul Konerko said, per the Detroit Free Press. "I know he’s going to do well, I just want to see where that’s going to go, because he can (hit for) average and power. He can go out and hit .260 with 40 home runs. He really has the potential to be a monster in this league."

New White Sox hitting coach Todd Steverson is also impressed with what he's seen from the 22-year-old outfielder.

"Being able to work with him, I can understand where they’re coming from," Steverson said. "It’s obvious he’s still young and needs to shape his game into what he’s going to be, but that’s every player who has played in the big leagues.

"I hate to use the word ‘potential,’ because it’s a very dangerous word, but if he does live up to what he has on that level, we’ve got something special."
