Jaime Garcia will undergo thoracic outlet syndrome surgery on Friday.

The news was expected, but Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak made it official on Tuesday. Garcia will obviously be sidelined for the remainder of the 2014, but he's hoping to be ready for spring training. The left-hander is owed $9.25 million in 2015 but won't be guaranteed a spot in the rotation.

Jaime Garcia has opted to have surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome and will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2014 season.

With the projected recovery timeframe for the surgery, it's unlikely that he'll be counted on to contribute to the Cardinals at any point during the 2015 campaign as well. The oft-injured left-hander posted a 4.12 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 39/7 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings with the Cardinals this season.

Jaime Garcia allowed four earned runs in five innings against Philadelphia on Friday.

Garcia had been on a bit of a roll as of late, allowing just one run in his last fourteen innings, but he allowed four runs in five innings in Friday's game against Philadelphia as he took the loss. On the positive side, he struck out seven and only walked two. His ERA sits at 4.12 and hopefully this is just a slight stumble. He'll look to get back in the win column against the Rockies next week.

The left-hander had one awful inning last week against the Royals but has mostly been impressive since returning from the disabled list. He holds a 4.26 ERA but a 0.95 WHIP and 26/3 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings. Garcia will take on the Nationals at home next weekend.

The southpaw has been largely good since coming off the disabled list, as he's got a 0.97 WHIP and 22/0 K/BB ratio to go with an ugly 5.47 ERA. He's got another tough test when he takes on the potent Blue Jays lineup in Toronto on Saturday.
