"It hurts when I put my weight on it and you don't want to rush it. Take a day, see what happens, see how I feel tomorrow," Garcia said. "I want to play. It's just something that's out of my control.
"If I feel better, yes, because I don't want this to get worse. You just have to be patient. I don't want to be in the training room. I came here to compete. I came here to play baseball and I hate to be in the training room."
J.B. Shuck replaced Garcia in right and finished with two hits, one run scored and the game-winning sacrifice fly in the eighth, bringing home Gordon Beckham. Shuck found out about the start during Friday's batting practice.
"He had a great game tonight," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura of Shuck. "The last minute you put him in there, he knows how to play."
"Everybody had a little role in it. It was a great team win," Shuck said. "Samardzija did a great job, after the first inning, of just shutting them down, giving us a chance. We had some big at-bats and everybody came through today."
