Avisail Garcia (knee) expects to return to the White Sox lineup on Saturday.

Advice: He hasn't played since aggravating his knee injury during Monday's game. It's the type of injury that isn't serious enough to land him on the disabled list, but could continue to crop up here and there throughout the grind of the MLB season.

Avisail Garcia (knee) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Advice: Garcia hasn't played since aggravating his right knee injury during Monday's game. He is progressing, though, as he did some running and will hit and take flyballs during batting practice before the game. It sounds like he could be back in the lineup at some point over the weekend. J.B. Shuck is in right field Friday.

Advice: Garcia hasn't played since leaving Monday's game in Toronto with discomfort in his right knee. It's something that has been bothering him for a couple of weeks, so the White Sox want to give him some extended rest. The 23-year-old is batting .327/.365/.456 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 39 games this season. J.B. Shuck is in right field in the first half Thursday.

Avisail Garcia is considered day-to-day after leaving Monday's game with more inflammation in his right knee.

Advice: Garcia had just returned to action on Sunday after missing two games with the ailment. He singled in his first at-bat Monday but then had to be taken out when the knee acted up on him again. It sets up as a sticky situation for fantasy owners, as Garcia's ailment doesn't appear bad enough to require a disabled list stint but he also might be in and out of the lineup.

Avisail Garcia exited Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning with an apparent injury.

Advice: Garcia singled in his lone at-bat in the top of the frame but then was removed for defense in the bottom of the inning. The outfield has battled inflammation in his right knee of late, so it's safe to assume that's the issue here again. The White Sox should update his status soon.
