Latest Update De Aza is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday. Sat Aug, 16, 05:01 PM
Has great speed, which he uses effectively on the base-paths and in the outfield. Is adept at slapping the ball all over the field. Can steal bags and set the table effectively. Can play all three outfield positions.
Flaws: : Doesn't have a good-enough batting eye or enough patience to become an elite table-setter. Has trouble staying away from the infirmary. Also needs to improve his production against left-handed pitching.
De Aza has been heating up, with a five game hit streak, but he'll sit for Avisail Garcia, who has recently been activated from the DL. De Aza had been receiving decent playing time lately, but if Garcia plays well (and he certainly could), De Aza may find himself on the bench much more towards the end of the season.

De Aza left Monday's game after injuring his knee and was held out of Tuesday's lineup as well. The injury wasn't considered serious and the team was being a little extra-cautious holding him out on Tuesday, but he's back in the lineup Wednesday and playing left field.Analyst: Howard Bender
De Aza has been hot, reeling off four two-hit games in a row. Let's hope the bruised knee isn't anything that keeps him sidelined for long. Consider him day-to-day.Analyst: Spencer Silva
De Aza is just 2-for-48 (.042) against left-handers this year, so he'll take a seat with Jonn Lester on the mound for Boston on Thursday. Dayan Viciedo will move over to left field with Moises Sierra in right.Analyst: Howard Bender
