Garcia is expected to continue in his utility role while filling an everyday role if a void emerges, James Fegan of the Athletic reported. The White Sox currently have a job opening at second base after they traded Nick Madrigal to the Cubs last season and then declined Cesar Hernandez’s option for 2022, making him a free agent.

Garcia has hit .259 with a .666 OPS in nine MLB seasons.
