White Sox OF Avisail Garcia set to start rehab assignment
CHICAGO (AP) — White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is set to start a minor league rehab assignment as he works his way back from a strained right hamstring.
General manager Rick Hahn says the 2017 All-Star will begin rehab with Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday and will need at least seven to 10 days before he is activated. Garcia has not played since April 23. He is batting .233 with four RBIs in 18 games after hitting .330 and driving in 80 runs a year ago.
Hahn also says outfielder Leury Garcia (sprained left knee) is just about ready to go on a rehab assignment, though the White Sox don’t have a start date.
