Rightfielder Avisail Garcia of the Chicago White Sox reacts after being injured diving for a line drive by DJ LeMahieu #9 of the Colorado Rockies in the sixth inning. It turned out to be the last play he'll make this season.

A big part of the rejuvenated Chicago White Sox offense is out for the season.

The team announced Thursday that 22-year-old outfielder Avisail Garcia will undergo season-ending surgery this week for a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Garcia injured himself Wednesday while attempting to make a diving catch in the 6th inning of the game against the Colorado Rockies.

Initial X-rays proved negative, but an MRI revealed the torn labrum.

Garcia was batting .267 (8-30) with two home runs, four RBI and six runs scored in eight games this season.

He was acquired from the Detroit Tigers in a trade last year.

The White Sox recalled outfielder Jordan Danks from Class AAA Charlotte.
