Garcia not to undergo shoulder surgery
Jaime Garcia has returned from meeting with Dr. James Andrews, who recommended that Garcia not undergo surgery to address what has been diagnosed as a rotator cuff strain and inflammation in his left shoulder.
As a result, Garcia will begin a rehab program now with the intention of being re-evaluated in two or three weeks by Cardinals head physician Dr. George Paletta.
“To me, it’s at least a plan,” general manager John Mozeliak said of the news. “There’s nothing that is screaming surgery. Dr. Andrews felt like getting him some rehab to see if he can work through it is fine.”
