The White Sox will get some much-needed roster upgrades in time for Friday’s doubleheader with the A’s at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Avisail Garcia and Leury Garcia were activated from the disabled list. To make room for the two returnees, Trayce Thompson was designated for assignment and Jose Rondon was sent to Charlotte.
Avisail Garcia’s last appearance for the Sox was on April 23, after which he was placed on the DL with a strained right hamstring. In a seven-game minor-league rehab assignment with Charlotte, Garcia went 9-for-25 with three home runs and three doubles. He was the lone Sox All-Star in 2017.
