Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton (leg) is out of the lineup Friday, June 27. He's being replaced by INF/OF Leury Garcia.
Fantasy Tip: Eaton probably will have to sit for a few days, if not go on the DL. We'll have more as it comes to light.

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton (leg) left the game in the top of the first inning with a cramp in his left leg Thursday, June 26. Eaton was injured while trying to beat out a grounder. He was replaced by OF Leury Garcia.
Fantasy Tip: Although the injury doesn’t sound serious at this point, Eaton did spend time on the disabled list earlier this year with a hamstring injury. Keep an eye out for updates once he is further evaluated.

Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura gave SS Leury Garcia the start in the leadoff spot Monday, May 12, in order to try to find an offensive spark for the team, and the skipper said he wants to get Garcia more at-bats, even if it means moving some players around or benching OF Moises Sierra, who is .364 (8-for-22) in his first six games with the team.
Fantasy Tip: Take note if you are in need of some speed in AL-only leagues.

The Texas Rangers acquired OF Alex Rios from the Chicago White Sox Friday, Aug. 9. The White Sox will also send $1 million to the Rangers for Rios' salary. The White Sox will receive a player to be named or cash considerations. The Rangers are expected to send SS Leury Garcia to Chicago. With Rios gone, OF Avisail Garcia could come up and see playing time in the majors. Garcia had 10 hits in 24 at-bats (.417) with a home run and nine RBIs with Triple-A Charlotte.
Fantasy Tip: Texas was desperately seeking outfield help with Nelson Cruz suspended for the rest of the season. David Murphy and Craig Gentry are expected to platoon in left field from here on out.
Blake Tekotte was called up today, but if Garcia is brought up also, the latter should see most of the playing time for the rest of the year. Add Garcia immediately in AL-only leagues, for now.
