Jared Mitchell could miss the entire season

Jared Mitchell tore the tendon on the inside of his left ankle during Friday's 10-7 victory over the Angels at Tempe Diablo Stadium after running into the left-field wall to make a catch. He will have surgery next week, and his recovery time will be set at that point.

That spectacular catch took place on a ball hit by Juan Rivera for the first out of the sixth inning after Mitchell had entered the game as a defensive replacement.

"Very, very bad," said manager Ozzie Guillen of the injury. "Hopefully, it's not the worst thing about it. He has to use his speed and everything. It's a shame. He [was having] a good Spring Training.
