MLB Injury News:
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.

The Chicago White Sox were busy on the trade front this season, as usual. Kenny Williams is notorious for his wheeling and dealing in late July, but it was different this time. The White Sox are almost always in the hunt for a playoff spot. Rebuilding mode is not something that Sox fans are used to.
For those of you who stopped watching long ago because things got ugly, I’ll recap...
OVER BEFORE IT STARTED

Chicago White Sox bench coach Mark Parent, has added another oddball moment to 2013 season.
As seen in this video, Parent was ejected while he was trading lineup cards just before Sunday’s 5-2 victory over the Rangers.
Whatever he said to crew chief Jerry Layne was enough to get him bounced in what could be record time.

The White Sox continued a series winning streak on Sunday.
Who knew passing out the lineup card in the beginning of a game could be so interesting. Chicago White Sox bench coach Mark Parent was ejected during the ritualistic exchange of the lineup cards between the two teams and the four umpires on Sunday.

From time to time Jordan Danks asks his brother John if he’s done any more “brother interviews.”
Although it’s rare that two brothers find their way onto the same big-league team the Danks duo don’t figure to have anything new to say when asked about playing with each other for the umpteenth time.
But that changed Sunday when Jordan hit a go-ahead home run in the fourth...
Josh Phegley got the Gatorade bath. The happy beating from his teammates. And a special something Gordon Beckham had learned from A.J. Pierzynski.
Which was fitting because the former Sox catcher was behind the plate when Sox rookie catcher Phegley delivered the first game-ending hit of his career.
Phegley’s two-out single in the ninth Saturday night scored Avisail Garcia to...
