Avisail Garcia undergoes successful surgery


Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia underwent successful surgery this morning at Rush Oak Park Hospital to repair a torn labrum and avulsion fracture in his left shoulder.

The surgery was performed by a team of surgeons, led by Dr. Anthony Romeo with assistance from Dr. Nik Verma and Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph. Garcia, 22, will remain in Chicago with the club while undergoing approximately six months of rehabilitation. He is expected to be available without restriction for the start of 2015 spring training.

Garcia suffered the injury attempting a diving catch on April 9 at Colorado. He was batting .267 (8-30) with two home runs, four RBI and six runs scored in eight games this season, including a career-high four hits and his first career multihomer game on April 8 against the Rockies.
