Atlanta United defender Greg Garza
will be out of action 4-6 after undergoing successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.
Garza originally suffered the injury
during the 2017 MLS All-Star Game and re-aggravated it during the Red Stripes' match against New York Red Bulls on May 20. The original injury came in the fifth minute of the MLS all-stars' game
against Real Madrid when he became tangled with Isco
and fell to the ground on his shoulder.
The Texan started 25 games in his first season on loan from Mexico's Tijuana. He
started 10 games for Atlanta in 2018 and had one goal and three assists as he moved from left back to left wing back in Tata Martino
’s new 3-5-2 formation.
Martino said on
Tuesday he hoped Garza could return before the end of the 2018 season.
