Garcia strains thumb
Chicago White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia has a strained ligament in his right thumb and will be placed on the disabled list, General Manager Rick Hahn said Wednesday before the City Series game against the Cubs at Guaranteed Rate Field. Garcia’s recovery is expected to take at least a couple of weeks. Hahn said a replacement player would be called up no later than today. Hahn said Garcia has struggled with the injury recently and expressed that the discomfort wasn’t getting better. Garcia, the lone Sox All-Star this season, was hitting .303 with 13 home runs and 54 RBI this season.
