Thursday for the Chicago White Sox had some good news and some bad news. The good news was they broke a 14-game losing streak to the Cleveland Indians by a 7-3 score.
The bad news … the team lost Avisail Garcia for the season, as it was found out he tore his left labrum and will need surgery. He injured his shoulder when diving for a catch Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies.
Here is a video from the Chicago Sun-Times as they spoke to GM Rick Hahn about the injury.
Hahn described the injury and situation by saying, “It stinks.”
He’s right because it does. Besides Garcia being injured being the biggest problem, what also hurt is how Garcia will lose a year of progression and learning at the MLB level.
It hurts the White Sox because they’ve also lost a power bat in Garcia, but we all hope a healthy and speedy recovery for Garcia.
In other White Sox news:
• In an article on the official White Sox site, it says “Power Abreu gives White Sox a piece to build around.”
• Here is an “rapid reaction” from ESPN Chicago about the White Sox 7-3 win over the Indians.
