White Sox re-call Avisail Garcia from Triple-A

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago White Sox have called up outfield prospect Avisail Garcia according to a report from Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune.

Avisail Garcia has been hyped as a five-tool player since arriving from the Tigers in the three-way deal that sent Jake Peavy to the Red Sox.

White Sox fans will get a chance to see for themselves Friday night when Garcia is expected to make his debut in Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Twins, taking the place of the departed Alex Rios, who was traded to the Rangers before Game 1.

The outfielder, who played well in the Tigers playoff run last year, hit .370 with one home run, nine RBI and six runs scored in eight games since joining the White Sox organization with Triple-A Charlotte. Overall this year in the minors, Garcia is hitting .379 with seven doubles, four triples, seven home runs, 36 RBI in 47 games.

Garcia will fill the spot left by Alex Rios, who was traded to the Rangers in a waiver deal.

"It’s been a brief time (at Charlotte), unfortunately, but the feelings of our player-development people have only reinforced what we’ve heard from our scouts," White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said. "He’s a multitalented, athletic kid who is very aware of what finishing touches need to be made to his game and he’s going to get the opportunity to do that in Chicago.
