CHICAGO (AP) — White Sox manager Robin Ventura says outfielder Avisail Garcia will have season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday.

Ventura confirmed the day of the operation before Sunday's game against the Cleveland Indians. The White Sox had already announced that Garcia would have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

He was injured trying to make a diving catch Wednesday at Colorado, a big blow for a team trying to rebound 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.
