CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia has had season-ending left shoulder surgery.

The White Sox said doctors at Rush Oak Park Hospital on Tuesday repaired a torn labrum and avulsion fracture in Garcia’s left shoulder.

The 22-year-old Garcia was injured when he attempted a diving catch on April 9 at Colorado. Garcia is expected to be ready for the start of spring training next season, without any restrictions.

Garcia was batting .267 with two home runs, four RBIs and six runs in eight games this season. He had his first career multihomer game the day before getting hurt.
