Freddy's back in town

Scott Podsednik is back and producing big for the White Sox. Will Freddy Garcia become the next member of the 2005 World Series champs to return to the South Side and help the Sox make another title run? Stay tuned. Garcia was at U.S. Cellular Field Sunday morning, and he'll throw a bullpen session Monday. If all goes well, the 33-year-old pitcher will head to the minor leagues and try pitching his way back to the big leagues. Garcia was released by the New York Mets in late April following a pair of rocky starts for Class AAA Buffalo. The big right-hander said the cold weather took a toll on his shoulder. Garcia was traded from the White Sox to the Phillies for Gavin Floyd and Gio Gonzalez on Dec. 6, 2006. Garcia won just 1 game for Philadelphia before having shoulder surgery in August of 2007. Garcia rested for over a month after being released by the Mets, and he's been throwing since early June after signing with the Sox. “I'm feeling good,” Garcia said Sunday. “It's about time. I don't have any pains so that's good.”
