Garcia signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the White Sox, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia's 2016 campaign was a replica of his 2015 output in many ways, as his 12 home runs, .245 average, and .692 OPS were all in the same ballpark as his production in those departments the year before. He'll probably be the DH on most days, but he started 51 games in the outfield last season, so he could see some time in one of the corner spots when either Melky Cabrera or Adam Eaton need a day off.

Garcia is out of the lineup Tuesday in Philadelphia, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports.

EDGE Analysis

He is hitting .272 over his last 27 games, but his home runs (two), strikeouts (30) and OBP (.306) over that stretch leave a lot to be desired. Adam Eaton will start in right field while Leury Garcia starts in center field Tuesday.

Garcia homered and scored three times in a 4-for-5 game in Monday's win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia's line since returning from the disabled list August 23 is now up to a sharp .308/.338/.449, including seven extra base hits (two home runs). He still has a brutal 3:22 BB:K in 20 games in that stretch, though, so it might be a bit early to think he has fully turned things around.

Garcia went 3-for-4 with a two doubles and a two-run homer in a 9-3 victory over the Mariners on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

This was Garcia's first three-hit game since May 15, and it was the first time this year he had three extra-base hits in the same contest. Garcia is slashing .251/.316/.401 with 10 home runs, 40 RBI and 44 runs this season.

Garcia will primarily play right field for the remainder of the season, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia served as the team's primary DH for majority of the season, but that appears to be Justin Morneau's spot now. This could be Garcia's final audition in the outfield, as he has yet to live up to his potential through his four years in the White Sox organization. The defensive dropoff from Adam Eaton to Garcia could be steep, fantasy managers who own White Sox pitchers should pay heed.

Garcia is starting in right field for Tuesday's contest against the Phillies, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia was activated from the DL on Tuesday, and the White Sox are wasting no time to return him to action. Garcia will have a favorable matchup to get back on track, as Jake Thompson is slated to take the mound for the Phillies.

Garcia (knee) was activated from the DL on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

After completing a rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte over the weekend, Garcia will rejoin the White Sox and could return to the lineup as early as Tuesday night's matchup with the Phillies. In a corresponding move, the Sox optioned outfielder Jason Coats to Charlotte in order to free up a roster spot.

Garcia (knee) began his minor league rehab assignement with Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

He served as the Knights' DH in his first rehab appearance, but he moved to right field Sunday. He would be eligible to come off the disabled list in time for the start of the White Sox's series against the Phillies on Tuesday, but he might be able to use a few more games at Charlotte to get ready.

Garcia was placed on the 15-day DL Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what is exactly causing Garcia to head to the DL but he sat out Sunday's game so something may have been bothering him then. Check back for details concerning what issue the outfielder is dealing with, but in the meantime, Jason Coats will be recalled from Triple-A Charlotte to replace the ailing Garcia.

Garcia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia has replaced J.B. Shuck as a regular starter in the outfield of late, aiding his cause to stick in that role by going 7-for-24 with three homers and six RBI over his last seven games. He'll be rested Sunday, however, as Shuck gets the start in center field while Adam Eaton claims Garcia's usual spot in right field.
