(CBS) In an interview with the Boers and Bernstein Show on Thursday afternoon, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn called outfielder Avisail Garcia’s season-ending torn labrum a “lousy” development and added there was no option other than to shut him down for the season.
“Initially, the thought was perhaps rehab was the way to go,” Hahn said. “Unfortunately, this specific injury, this specific tear of the labrum does have some bone involvement. So that needs to be reattached and no amount of rehabilitation is going to solve that. You have to go into (surgery) to make that heal properly.”
