Garcia underwent surgery on his injured left ring finger and is expected to miss two months, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Garcia's injury continues to escalate in severity, as he was once thought to be close to avoiding a DL stint. Hopefully this reduces the chance of injury moving forward by nipping the ailment in the bud right now. This will knock him out until mid-August at the earliest, although more details on his return date should come forth as he ramps up his activity over the course of the summer. Rio Ruiz will likely pick up primary third baseman duties while Garcia is sidelined.
