Continuing our 'Getting to Know the Future' series with another infielder, we're ready keep the discussion going with another infielder. This time, it's new acquisition, Leury Garcia.
Garcia, 22, was recently sent over from the Texas Rangers in the Alex Rios trade. So let's take a closer look at Rick Hahn's newest toy ...
Leury has the most experience playing the infield (2B, 3B, SS), but can also play the outfield. And he does so extremely well. Though he had trouble avoiding the errors in his first years as a professional (2008-2011), he's really turned it around throughout the past couple seasons.
The Texas organization grew very comfortable with Garcia as a defender, which earned him a promotion to the big leagues for the first 2.5 months of the 2013 season. There, he played 87.1 innings at 2B, 19 at 3B, and 21 at SS. In all of that time, he committed just one error in 62 chances. While that was great to see, he just wasn't...

White Sox captain Paul Konerko has not indulged those who speculate about whether he will retire this year after 15 seasons in Chicago and teammate Gordon Beckham wouldn't play what-if either Monday when asked whether he could fill a leadership void should Konerko leave.
"He's got a lot more left in the tank so I wouldn't rule him out of playing next year"...
White Sox pitcher Chris Sale said he enjoyed his extra rest time in the dugout Monday night watching his teammates produce for him in rare fashion.
The White Sox gave Sale a season-high six runs of support and the left-hander responded by shutting out the Tigers after the second inning in a 6-2 complete-game victory over the American League Central leaders at U.S. Cellular Field...
Alejandro De Aza singled in the winning run with the bases loaded in the 11th inning to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
Avisail Garcia had two hits against his former team, drove in two runs and scored two, including the game-winner. The White Sox overcame three errors by shortstop Alexei Ramirez to hand the AL Central leaders...
Alex Rodriguez seems to be all over the news and people can’t get enough of him. Sports is entertainment and there’s no figure in sports now who is more entertaining than Alex Rodriguez. Like him or not, he is moving the needle. And the guys sitting in the pinstripe suits in high rise buildings that sell advertising are liking Alex Rodriguez. That fact is underscored by the...

We are open to suggestions as to what is going on with these two fans who got a little weird with each other in the eleventh inning at U.S. Cellular field in Chicago on Tuesday. The fact they are sitting in separate rows leads us to question whether they even know each other. If they are White Sox fans in the mist of this dreadful season, you got to believe one is putting the...
During the Tigers’ 6-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox last night, Tigers short stop Jose Iglesias displayed just why Dave Dombrowski chose to part with prized corner outfield prospect Avisail Garcia a few weeks ago.
The play itself occurred during the 6th inning when Chicago’s Josh Phegley hit a weak grounder that just made it over the glove of Tigers’ starter Doug Fister (surprisingly...
The White Sox start a two-city road trip this weekend with a four game series against the Twins at Target Field. They went 6-4 on the last homestand, winning five out of six games against the Yankees and Tigers, but losing three out of four to Minnesota. As usual, baseball makes perfect sense.
Minnesota is in the midst of an eight-game homestand and dropped two of three...
