Shed a tear for Tres Garcias.
The baseball oddity of a three-Garcia outfield no longer exists on the South Side after the White Sox made another round of roster cuts at spring training that included the release of Willy Garcia.
Garcia, who teamed with Avisail Garcia and Leury Garcia to form baseball's first outfield where all three players had the same last name last season, played in 44 big league games for the White Sox in 2017, slashing .238/.305/.400 with 15 runs scored and 12 driven in in 119 plate appearances. He also notably crashed into Yoan Moncada in shallow right field and suffered a broken jaw.
There didn't appear to be much of a place for him in the 2018 outfield, with Avisail Garcia and Nicky Delmonico seemingly locked in on the corners and Adam Engel, Ryan Cordell and Leury Garcia battling for the starting center fielder's job (a battle in which Cordell has made some noise this spring).
In addition to releasing Garcia, the White Sox took Jace Fry out of the bullpen mix, optioning him to Triple-A Charlotte. Five players were sent to minor league camp, including highly ranked pitching prospect Alec Hansen, who struck out Joey Votto earlier in spring training.
The White Sox still have 53 players in big league camp, a number that will get down to 25 with a little less than three weeks until the season opener in Kansas City.
