. UTIL. Chicago White Sox. Leury Garcia. 27. player. 128

The Chicago White Sox have a good player in Leury Garcia. He is the type of guy that can play every position which is nice. He can pop in the lineup at just about any spot and be productive for a game or two. He is mainly needed to start the year at second-base because they haven’t called up Nick Madrigal yet. They are probably going to call him up soon which leaves Garcia without a position.

Right-field might have been a spot for Garcia as Nomar Mazara is out right now but he is coming back soon as well so there will be really no place for Garcia in the everyday lineup. Every position is taken by a guy who is above average in some way so keeping a guy like Garcia in is not worth it.

If they didn’t trade him, he is a good utility guy to have on the bench but you almost can’t assume that Rick Renteria will use him in that spot like he should. Moving him for pitching would take his ability to do that away and give them another solid arm for the rotation. Until that happens, hopefully, the White Sox are able to use their best players and have Garcia as a great bench piece.
