Garcia (back) is out of the lineup Friday against the Royals.

As expected, Garcia will sit Friday after leaving Thursday's game in the second inning with lower-back stiffness. The White Sox have not ruled Garcia out for the final two games of the season, but they have no reason to rush him back, so there's no guarantee he'll play this weekend. Jordan Danks will move over to right field Friday, with Michael Taylor stepping in at left.

Garcia will likely miss Friday's game due to a stiff lower back that flared up Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Garcia was replaced in Thursday's game by Moises Sierra in right field. He is considered day-to-day, but will miss at least Friday's game. With no postseason to play for, the White Sox probably won't rush him back from injury, but his contract is up at the end of the year, so the back injury won't be a good way for Garcia to end the season if he has indeed played his last game.
