Right fielder Avisail Garcia left the White Sox game against the Minnesota Twins with back spasms Saturday night.

Garcia felt something in a muscle in his middle back area while running out to right field to take his position, manager Robin Ventura said. Ventura said Garcia will probably miss a couple of days, although Garcia said it was minor and hoped to be feel better and able to play Sunday afternoon.

Left fielder Trayce Thompson moved to right and J.B. Shuck entered the game in left. Garcia was robbed of a hit on second baseman Brian Dozier’s diving stop during the first inning. He entered the game hitting .311 with 17 runs scored over his last 24 games and seven RBI in his last 10 games.
