Avisail Garcia Smokes Homer, Feels Great


Chicago White Sox Baseball — The Chicago White Sox lost 16-0 last night in what seemed like a bad dream. Luckily there was some good news from Charlotte, as Avisail Garcia went 3-5 including a home run (video above). Garcia has looked good in his rehab assignment and said he feels great. He’s currently batting .533¬†through four games with the Charlotte Knights.

There was a brief scare on Sunday when Avi was hit by a pitch and had to leave the game, but it turned out to be minor. He’s still only DH’ing but once he gets comfortable in the field, he’ll find his way back up with the Sox.¬†Robin Ventura and the rest of the White Sox organization were amazed by Avisail’s recovery time and it sounds like fans will see him back in uniform come September.

It’s a great sign to see Avisail Garcia not only rehabbing, but coming out the gate hot. Fans will no doubt welcome him back not only for the excitement he brings, but because the outfield/offense could sure use him.
