Cards' Garcia out for year

ST. LOUIS — Cardinals LHP Jaime Garcia will need season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, according to multiple media reports.

Garcia was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with what the club initially diagnosed as a shoulder strain. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Dr. James Andrews confirmed the labrum tear in an examination Wednesday morning.
