As expected, outfielder Jared Mitchell is going to miss the upcoming season after having surgery in Scottsdale, Ariz., Tuesday morning to repair a retinaculum tear of the tendon in his left ankle on the medial (inside) side.

Mitchell, the White Sox’ top prospect, suffered the injury making a catch during a Cactus League game against the Angels last Friday.

According to the Sox, the surgery lasted 75 minutes and the 21-year-old Mitchell is expected to make a full and complete recovery. He will be immobilized for 4-6 weeks before beginning rehabilitation.
In exhibition play this spring, Mitchell was 4-for-9 with 2 doubles and 4 RBI.
