Don Cooper returns, Avisail Garcia out Sox

By Doug Padilla

CHICAGO -- While pitching coach Don Cooper was back on the Chicago White Sox’s bench Monday after a stomach issue, outfielder Avisail Garcia was out of action because of a dental issue.

“It sounds like two teeth,” manager Robin Ventura said. “I think he had a double extraction, so he’s not going to be playing today. He couldn’t talk very well at the moment. We’re going to let him relax and not do anything, so hopefully tomorrow he’ll be able to play. I think he had two root canals, which is something everybody would enjoy, I’m sure. “

Jordan Danks got the start in right field for Garcia, who is batting .320 (52-for-183) with a .440 slugging percentage and a .358 slugging percentage since he was first called up to the White Sox last month.

For Cooper, it’s his second bout of abdominal pain for this season. He missed the White Sox’s opening 10-game road trip of the season with the same issue.
