Leury Garcia among seven White Sox roster moves


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Chicago White Sox cleared out their major league clubhouse a little further Tuesday, announcing seven roster moves.

The most significant move was to option infielder Leury Garcia to Triple-A Charlotte. He turned his speed and versatility into a major league bench role last season, but the presence of both Emilio Bonifacio and Gordon Beckham squeezed him out this spring.

Also being optioned to Charlotte were left-hander Onelki Garcia and infielder Andy Wilkins. Right-hander Frankie Montas was optioned to Double-A Birmingham.

Three pitchers were reassigned to minor league camp: Right-handers Logan Kensing and Nolan Sanburn, as well as left-hander Joe Savery.

With the moves, the White Sox now have 44 players remaining in major league camp with less than two weeks remaining to settle on a 25-man roster. Of the players remaining in camp, 25 are pitchers with four catchers, nine infielders and six outfielders.
