    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.
