Chicago White Sox place CF Leury Garcia (sprained finger) on DL


The Chicago White Sox placed center fielder Leury Garcia on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a sprained finger on his left hand.

Garcia, 26, did not start Sunday for the seventh straight game, being available only as a pinch runner. The move is retroactive to June 16.

Garcia is hitting .298 with nine doubles, one triple, six home runs, 22 RBIs, 28 runs scored and a .345 on-base percentage in 56 games this season.

Garcia is the team’s regular center fielder but has played left field, shortstop and second base.
