St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia will have season-ending surgery on his injured throwing shoulder, reports CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman.

Heyman reports that Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Garcia has a "30 to 40" percent tear in his labrum.

Garcia was 5-2 with a 3.58 ERA this season. He had gone on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with what was called a shoulder strain.
