White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia exited yesterday's contest against the Texas Rangers after running into the right-field wall while tracking a home run hit by Jeff Baker. While he remained down for several minutes following the contact with the wall, Garcia later passed all concussion tests, according to manager Robin Ventura. Ventura told reporters -- including Scott Merkin of MLB.com -- that Garcia was feeling light-headed but was otherwise looking "pretty good" after the game. "Some of that is he was a little dehydrated last night. So I think that was probably some of it today," Ventura said. "He just felt a little light-headed. So [you] just take him out. He looks pretty good right now. When he comes in tomorrow, you look at it. He's already wanting to play tomorrow. We'll look at it again when he gets here." Garcia was tracking Baker's long fly ball, which eventually cleared the right-field fence, before colliding with the wall. After hitting the fence, Garcia remained on the ground for several minutes before walking off the field under his own power. He was replaced in the outfield by Jordan Danks. The White Sox acquired Garcia in the three-team trade that sent Jake Peavy to the Boston Red Sox. The former top prospect is viewed as a potential regular in the outfield, and while Chicago isn't contending for a playoff spot this year, Garcia was an exiting young player for fans to watch. As such, Chicago is hoping that he'll be able to rejoin the roster soon in order to continue his development. However, since they're not currently in contention for the playoffs, the White Sox have no reason to rush the young outfielder back as they continue to monitor his injury.
