St. Louis Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia will likely be removed from the team's postseason roster before Game 3 on Wednesday because of an "impingement" in his throwing shoulder, reports Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

The 26-year-old allowed a run on two hits through two innings in Game 2 before leaving with shoulder discomfort. Garcia underwent an MRI during the game and it is believed he may have aggravated the shoulder injury that sidelined him for two months earlier in the year.

The Cardinals will replace Garcia on the NLDS roster with another pitcher, likely a reliever. Even if Garcia manages to recover from his injury, he is ineligible to return to the club if St. Louis advances to the Championship Series. He would, however, be eligible for the World Series.

It is unclear at this time what Garcia's teammates are "furious" about, though it may be that the left-hander hid his injury from the team and put the game in jeopardy.
