Avisail Garcia out for season with torn labrum

Rob Tringali

On top of a bleak season outlook, the White Sox will now trudge through the long, impending summer without their 22 year-old outfielder. Earlier today, the team placed Avisail Garcia on the disabled list:

Garcia had gotten off to a good start this year, hitting .267/.353/.467 in eight games and thirty-four plate appearances. Chicago was hoping to see some improvement out of the young hitter, who they received in the three-way trade last year that sent Jake Peavy to the Red Sox and Jose Iglesias to Detroit.

The silver lining might be that this injury is to Garcia's non-throwing shoulder. He is expected to have surgery next week and start rehabbing in a few months. When he returns, he will continue to be looked upon as a part of the young core of players that Chicago hopes to carry to a brighter future.

To replace him, the White Sox called up Jordan Danks, who will likely split time with Dayan Viciedo and Alejandro De Aza in the outfield. Last season, Danks hit .231/.313/.369 in 179 plate appearances.
