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.

Garcia is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old will be a healthy scratch as Justin Morneau steps in at DH for his first start as a member of the White Sox. It's been a struggle for Garcia throughout the 2016 season but he's been especially bad lately (3-for-27 in July), and it seems Morneau's at-bats may come largely at Garcia's expense.

Garcia is out of the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia has started each of the six games the White Sox have played this month, but will be getting a day off Friday. In his place, the club is starting Brett Lawrie in the DH spot as Carlos Sanchez will man second base.

Garcia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

For the second straight game, the White Sox will reserve the DH spot in the lineup for one of their everyday options in the field, as Todd Frazier will get a day off third base. As a result, Garcia will get squeezed out of the lineup again, and it could start to become a recurring trend. The 25-year-old hasn't developed as the White Sox anticipated, and is slashing a middling .247/.309/.358 across 215 at-bats on the season.

Garcia went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old extended his hitting streak to seven games with his fourth multi-hit effort of June. Garcia's game-tying double in the top of the ninth off Indians closer Cody Allen temporarily made him the hero, until Carlos Santana won the game with a solo shot in the bottom of the frame. Garcia is enjoying his best month of the season to date, as he's now hitting .311 (14-for-45) with six RBI in June.

Garcia went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The Venezuelan slugger saved the White Sox from a shutout in front of the home crowd by plating Todd Frazier with a ninth-inning single off Royals closer Wade Davis. Garcia has now hit safely in three of his last four games, with two of those contests being multi-hit efforts. He's provided modest production over 172 at-bats this season, slashing .250/.305/.384 with five homers and 22 RBI.

Garcia is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets, according to MLB.com's Scott Merkin.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia is hitting .292 in May, but the White Sox will not be afforded the designated hitter position while playing in Citi Field, so Garcia -- the team's primary DH -- was squeezed out of Monday's lineup. The White Sox will play two more games against the Mets after Monday's, and Garcia could see action in right field if manager Robin Ventura decides not to hold him out three days in a row.

The homer was his first since May 5, while the game marked the second time in the month he's tallied three RBI. He's now slashing .259/.316/.424 over 139 at-bats this season.
