|Jaime Garcia to undergo season-ending surgery|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia will undergo surgery on his left shoulder, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reports.
Garcia first suffered the shoulder problem May 17 against Milwaukee. He is expected to miss the remainder of the season. Tyler Lyons will take his spot in the rotation for now, but expect that to be in flux with Jake Westbrook's return on the horizon.
|Jaime Garcia "very concerned" about shoulder|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) The Cardinals are not confident that Jaime Garcia's recurring shoulder pain can be fixed with rehab this time around, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Garcia avoided surgery in the offseason for a similar issue.
Garcia was placed on the disabled list Saturday, with the same injury that sidelined him twice last season. Garcia will see a specialist in the next few days to determine the course of action, but he did say that the injury seems more serious this time than it did last season. He also admitted to trying to pitch through it in his last three outings.
"There's pain. There's a lot more pain than last year," he said. "It started three starts ago. I was feeling great up to that point. Just tried to take care of it, doing little things here or there, and it went downhill. It got worse and worse. I'm very concerned. I'm very concerned."
Garcia is set to see Dr. James Andrews next week.
|Jaime Garcia headed to the DL|

(5/18/13) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia will go on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Saturday. The team will call up Mitchell Boggs to take his place on the active roster.
Garcia dealt with shoulder injuries last season, hitting the disabled list twice, though he did avoid surgery. It is not known how long he is expected to be sidelined.
It is not clear when Garcia suffered the injury, but he has allowed 11 runs in his last two starts, stretching over 11 1/3 innings.
|Jaime Garcia escapes with fifth win|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia had a hard time keeping the ball in the park but managed to escape with his fifth win of the season Friday night against the Brewers.
Garcia (5-2) surrendered a pair of three-run home runs to Aramis Ramirez for his only damage of the night. He was charged with six runs and six hits over 5 1/3 innings of work. He struck out five and walked one in a 7-6 win.
Garcia has served up four home runs in his last two starts. He has allowed 11 runs over 11 1/3 innings during that span. He is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at San Diego.
|Jaime Garcia's winning streak snapped |
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/12/13) Cardinals starting pitcher Jaime Garcia had his three-start winning streak snapped Sunday against the Rockies. Garcia allowed a season-high five runs on eight hits over six innings in the 8-2 defeat.
All five runs came on homers, including Troy Tulowitzki's three-run shot in the third inning. Charlie Blackmon added a two-run homer in the sixth.
Garcia, who had allowed two home runs entering Sunday, was pulled after throwing 96 pitches, 62 for strikes. He finished with seven strikeouts and a walk, while taking his second loss.
Garcia is scheduled to face the Brewers for the third time this season Friday. He is 1-0 with 0.60 ERA in those two starts.
|Statistically, Jaime Garcia's 2012 wasn't all that different from his first two major-league seasons, but in a year when many expected him to take the next step and cross the 200-inning threshold for the first time, he instead went the other way, making only 20 starts. The culprit was tearing in his rotator cuff and labrum, which sidelined him from early June to mid-August and popped up again in the postseason, when he angered teammates by attempting to pitch through pain, risking both his long-term health and their playoff chances. Though most physicians recommended surgery in the offseason, Garcia has chosen to rehab the injury instead, hoping to be ready in time for the start of the regular season. Naturally, fewer expect 200 innings from him this time around. Even at 100 percent, his contributions leave something to be desired. With pitching back on the upswing across baseball, his 1.30-plus WHIP hardly sets him apart, and he doesn't strike out batters at a particularly high rate. Plus, he seems to come unraveled on the road, posting a 4.47 ERA there compared to 2.48 at home for his career. Considering he'll be pitching with an injury that could force him to the operating table at a moment's notice, you wouldn't want to invest more than a late-round pick in Garcia. (Updated 11/30/12)|
