Originally written May 22, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
St. Louis Cardinals right-handed starting pitcher Jaime Garcia will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The procedure has been recommended by Dr. James Andrews, as he confirmed the original diagnosis of a small tear in Garcia's labrum. Heyman adds that the right-hander is said to have what was described as a 30- to 40-percent tear in his throwing shoulder. The operation will be performed by team doctor George Paletta. Garcia dealt with shoulder issues at the end of last season, and he attempted to rehab the ailment over the winter. He was able to do so and pitch quite well to open the 2013 campaign, something that surprised Andrews considering the current state of Garcia's shoulder. The surgery is expected to sideline Garcia for the remainder of the season. It's not clear how long he'll be out, as this will become more clear following the operation. Prior to his injury, Garcia posted an ERA of 3.58 with a 1.301 WHIP over nine appearances spanning 55 1/3 innings. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
