Most improved player – RF Avisail Garcia

The White Sox don’t have anyone on their roster who is playing above expectation so by default, Garcia is the choice here.

The White Sox right fielder has finally had the chance to show what he can do over an extended stretch. He is hitting .272/.318/.379 with seven home runs and 31 RBIs.

He hit over .300 for the first two months of the season before a .179 average in June.

The key for him has been health.

Since joining the White Sox, Garcia has not been able to stay on the field. Last season he played in just 46 games because of a shoulder injury.

This season, he has already played in 77 games. The White Sox hope he can avoid disabled list all together.
