Garcia went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia had been in a bit of a power slump, not having homered in 10 straight before Tuesday's bomb, but overall he continues to get on base. He's hitting .358 (24-for-67) with a .403 on-base percentage, three homers and 13 RBI for the month of June. It's been a remarkable season for Garcia, although one wonders how long he'll be able to sustain a .411 BABIP (third in MLB).

Garcia went 2-for-3 before getting tossed during the fifth inning of Thursday's 5-2 win over Baltimore for arguing a strike call.

EDGE Analysis

For fantasy owners looking at Thursday's box score and seeing that Garcia was replaced, know that it was for a benign reason. The right-fielder continued his breakout season, hitting safely for the eighth straight game (14-for-39, nine RBI) and burnishing his All-Star credentials.

Garcia (elbow) is in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles, batting cleanup and playing right field.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia was hit on the elbow by a pitch Tuesday, but just as he remained in Tuesday's contest, he'll be able to suit up Wednesday as well. He'll look to build upon his breakout season, in which he's batting .333 with 10 home runs and 48 RBI.

Garcia was hit by a pitch on his left elbow in Tuesday's win over the Orioles, but stayed in the game, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He finished the night 1-for-3 with a two-run double.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Rick Renteria said the pitch stung Garcia and will leave him sore in the coming days. Staying in the game is a good sign but don't be surprised if Renteria plays it cautious with Garcia, who has been the White Sox's best hitter this season.

Garcia hit a three-run home run Thursday against the Rays during the White Sox's 7-5 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia entered the day leading his team in OPS, which now sits at .921. His gaudy slash line of .330/.368/.553 should have fantasy owners salivating at the site of it. To boot, Garcia has 10 home runs and 46 RBI at roughly the one-third point of the season. Over his last eight games, the 27-year-old is hitting .353.

Garcia went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia's homer was his ninth of the season and first since May 20, snapping a skein of 51 at-bats without one. Prior to this recent 13-game drought, Garcia had gone yard once every 19 at-bats. But why pick nits and dwell on the negative. The 26-year-old outfielder has broken out over the first third of the season and leads the White Sox in RBI (39), batting average (.333), on-base percentage (.373) and slugging (.551).

Garcia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia played both halves of Saturday's doubleheader, so manager Rick Renteria will give the slugging outfielder the afternoon off to recuperate. With only four hits in his last 24 at-bats, Garcia is in the midst of a rare slump in what's been an otherwise outstanding season, so the White Sox are hopeful the day off will recharge him and get him back on track.

Garcia went 3-for-5 with a three-run double in Friday's 8-2 win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Garcia entered Friday without a hit in his previous 14 plate appearances, the longest stretch of futility he's experienced in what has been a breakout season for the outfielder. More than a quarter of the way through the season, Garica is slashing .341/.385/.576 with eight homers and 37 RBI. There might be temptation to view this 45-game stretch as an anomaly, but he's just 26-years-old and players develop on different schedules. This could be the beginning of what becomes a productive career for the one-time highly regarded prospect.

Garcia (illness) is back in the lineup Wednesday, batting fifth and playing right field, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

It didn't seem like Garcia would be sidelined for very long due to the flu-like symptoms that plagued him Tuesday, especially after entering Tuesday's game as a pinch hitter. He'll resume his normal spot in the lineup and will look to build off the .971 OPS he holds through his first 43 games.
