Terrible news for Jordan Lyles today – he will be missing the rest of the season with the Colorado Rockies, having to undergo surgery to repair his injured left toe. The toe, of course, had affected his last several starts after he injured it against the San Francisco Giants nearly two weeks ago.

First, he was pushed back from Friday to Sunday this past weekend in Philadelphia, to get a few more days of rest before pitching, and then in the second inning on Sunday, he was removed from the game after re-injuring his toe.

Now, he’ll miss the rest of the season, according to reporter Dargan Southard:

In every way, that’s bad new for the Rockies – who need all the quality starting pitching depth that they can get, and for Lyles – who at points this year was starting to come into his own with the club.

This is now the second year in a row that Lyles will miss a significant amount of time with a freak-ish injury, after he broke his left hand last season while covering home plate on a passed ball.

We’ll keep you updated regarding who (Chris Rusin, David Hale, etc.) would take his place in the rotation.
