CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox say outfielder Avisail Garcia will miss the rest of the season because of a tear in his left shoulder.

An MRI taken Thursday at Chicago's Rush University Medical Center revealed the torn labrum. He is scheduled to have surgery next week.

Garcia was hurt while trying to make a diving catch on DJ LeMahieu's drive to right field in the sixth inning of Wednesday's loss at Colorado. The ball was jarred loose when Garcia hit the ground.

The injury is a big blow to the White Sox, who are trying to bounce back from a 99-loss season. Garcia has batted .298 since being acquired from Detroit last summer in the three-team trade that sent Jake Peavy to Boston.

With Garcia on the 15-day disabled list, Chicago recalled outfielder Jordan Danks from Triple-A Charlotte.
