Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia has been placed on the DL with a hamstring strain. Garcia missed 55 games earlier this season with the same injury. His return to play depends on the severity of the new strain. If mild could be 2-4 weeks, if Grade 2, then likely close to 4-8 weeks RTP.

Lumbar nerve root irritation is another way of saying sciatica. This usually happens when a nerve in the lower section of the spine is irritated, generally by a disc bulge or bone spur.
