Jaime Garcia is owed $9.25 million next season.

Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia will miss the rest of the season after it was decided on Saturday that he will undergo surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted.

Garcia, who turns 29 next week, went to the disabled list in June with shoulder issues and had posted a 4.12 ERA over seven starts prior to the shoulder inflammation that lead to a trip to the DL. He has a 3.50 ERA in more than 600 innings pitched in the majors but General Manager John Mozeliak said on Saturday "he's been a hard guy to count on," Goold tweeted. 

Garcia was limited to just nine starts last season because of surgery to repair a 30-40 percent tear in his labrum. He's owed $9.25 million next season and his deal has club options for 2016 and '17.

The Cardinals are 47-40 -- second in the NL Central -- heading into Saturday's afternoon game at home vs. the Marlins
