Minnesota Twins right-hander Cole De Vries will miss the remainder of the season due to a cracked rib, reports Jordan Garretson of MLB.com:

Cole De Vries will miss the rest of the season with a cracked rib, Twins general manager Terry Ryan said on Thursday.

De Vries sustained the injury during his last start, which came September 8 against the Cleveland Indians. During the contest, the 27-year-old was hit in the chest by a comebacker. While he remained in the game and held the Indians scoreless over six innings of work, an MRI later revealed the extent of what has become his season-ending injury.

Over seventeen appearances, including sixteen starts, for Minnesota this season, De Vries has posted an ERA of 4.11 with 6.0 SO/9 and 1.8 BB/9.

Garretson added that as a result of De Vries’ injury, the Twins will transition back to a five-man rotation, which will include Scott Diamond, P.J. Walters, Liam Hendriks, Esmerling Vasquez and Samuel Deduno.
