White Sox RHP Garcia scratched from Sunday start

BY foxsports • September 11, 2010

White Sox right-hander Freddy Garcia was scratched from Sunday's scheduled start against the Kansas City Royals with a sore lower back.

Garcia, who had an epidural on Thursday, will throw on the side before the White Sox decide when he will make his next start. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said right-hander Lucas Harrell will start in place of Garcia on Sunday.

In Tuesday's loss to the Tigers, Garcia was limited to two inning before leaving with a stiff lower back. Garcia is 11-6 with a 4.88 ERA in 26 starts.

Harrell is scheduled to make his second start for the White Sox this season. Harrell, who earned the victory in his major league debut, pitched six innings and allowed one run on four hits against Oakland on July 30.
