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 (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.

Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Three of Garcia's nine homers on the season have come in his last three games. It's still difficult to justify a starting spot for Garcia in most standard mixed leagues, as he's batting just .238/.310/.377 on the year, although he's playing pretty regularly again after being relegated to a lesser role for most of July.

Garcia went 2-for-2 with two home runs and three RBI in the White Sox's loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia did not start this game, but he came off the bench once outfielder Charlie Tilson exited with a hamstring injury. Garcia will likely remain in a part-time role even if Tilson's injury proves to be somewhat serious.

Garcia is out of the lineup for Friday's contest against Minnesota, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia will be held out of the starting lineup for a sixth consecutive game as Justin Morneau takes over DH duties and bats fifth. Garcia's unproductiveness at the plate this month is a likely reason why he's been missing from the lineup card as he's gone just 7-for-37 (.189) in July.

Garcia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia looks ticketed for a regular reserve role now that Justin Morneau (elbow) has been activated from the DL and will make a second straight start as the DH on Sunday. The 25-year-old is slashing a woeful .230/.299/.329 across 278 plate appearances on the season.
