    Wily Garcia Called Up

    Post by rmapasad on Fri Apr 14, 2017 11:36 am

    Willy Garcia - OF - White Sox
    White Sox recalled outfielder Willy Garcia from Triple-A Charlotte.
    Garcia, who was claimed off waivers from the Pirates in January, was off to a .423/.559/.692 start in seven games for Charlotte. He typically has major plate discipline issues to go along with middling power and mediocre batting averages. It's possible that's all changed after seven games in Charlotte, but we doubt it. The plan is for him to head back to Triple-A once Melky Cabrera returns, but as wide open as things are in Chicago right now, a couple of good games could change that.   >>

    Melky is going to see his child born this weekend, so let the auditions start.  As noted before, Wily is not only tearing the cover off the ball but appears o have gotten plate discipline religion in Charlotte. 
    (8 walks/ 7 K's). Of course, this transformation has been VERY sudden.  Just last month in Arizona he hit .200/.259/.200 with 1 walk/9 K's. Last year in AAA he hit .245/.293/.366 with 31 BB's/131 K's..

    But on the 2017 Sox, 10 good games means you 'da man.   So welcome to the big leagues, Wily, and let's see how long this trance you've been in will last.
