Avisail out of finale lineup because of 'bad tooth'


BALTIMORE -- Outfielder Avisail Garcia was out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Orioles because of a "bad tooth," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said.

The tooth might get pulled Monday in Chicago, and Garcia could miss a "few games" depending on how he feels.

Garcia has been one of the club's hottest hitters, going 30-for-87 (.345) with three doubles, a triple, two homers and 13 RBIs over his past 23 games.

"He was supposed to be in there," Ventura said. "He was not feeling that good yesterday. He ought to get something done tomorrow."
