The Chicago White Sox bid goodbye to longtime veteran outfielder Leury Garcia on Thursday, paving the way for prospect Oscar Colas.

The moves were among several made by the team to finalize its Opening Day roster prior to Thursday night's game against the Houston Astros.

In addition to Colas, the White Sox selected the contract of infielder Hanser Alberto. They optioned left-hander Tanner Banks and infielder Jake Burger to Triple-A Charlotte.
