While he'll miss the remainder of the current campaign, both Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo will now have the opportunity to start most days of the week.(RotoWire, )

News: White Sox manager Robin Ventura says outfielder Avisail Garcia will have season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday.

The White Sox had already announced that Garcia would have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

News: Garcia suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder Wednesday and will undergo season-ending surgery. Impact: There was some hope Garcia had avoided a serious injury after preliminary X-rays came back negative, but further examinations revealed a worst-case scenario for the young outfielder. The White Sox were counting on Garcia to hold down the right field job all season and tap into his considerable potential, but his development will now be pushed back even further. In light of the injury, look for Dayan Viciedo and Alejandro De Aza to ascend to full-time roles at the corner outfield spots.(RotoWire, )

News: The Chicago White Sox say 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.

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.(STATS, 6:23pm)

Impact: Preliminary X-rays were negative for any fracture, separation or dislocation, but the team will have Garcia undergo an MRI on Thursday.

News: Garcia left Wednesday's game with an apparent left arm or shoulder injury, Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports. Impact: Arcia made a diving attempt at a ball in right field and appeared to hurt his left arm. He was clearly in pain as he walked off the field, but the team has yet to elaborate on the severity of the injury. If this is anything significant, Dayan Viciedo will likely be thrust into an everyday role.(RotoWire, )

News: Garcia was one of two White Sox to homer twice in Tuesday's 15-3 thrashing of the Rockies at Coors Field. He collected three RBI and two runs and finished 4-for-5. Impact: The young Venezuelan isn't known for the long ball, as just seven of his 88 career hits left the yard prior to Tuesday. Time will tell if Garcia's power surge in the thin Denver air is an anomaly or a sign of things to come. He's currently batting sixth in Chicago's batting order, but would inevitably move up if he continues to produce. Keep an eye on him.(RotoWire, )
