Avisail Garcia in in the early stages of his rehab process for his torn left labrum suffered in April 9 against the Colorado Rockies.
“This is really just the start of a long process for him. Just because he’s out here right now, I don’t necessarily see him making it back for this year. The prognosis the whole time was he would be back for Spring Training.”
Not having Garcia out on the field for basically this entire season (except for eight games) has affected this ball club, because he was productive when he was in games.
Garcia in those eight games this season for the White Sox batted .267 with two hone runs and four RBIs. He walked three times and totaled eight hits in what amounted to 30 at-bats. He also scored six runs.
I don’t see Garcia back this season for the White Sox, plus why risk a rushed recovery? Let him heal and have him healthy for the 2015 season.
