Twins rookie pitcher Cole De Vries will miss the rest of the 2012 season with a cracked rib. De Vries had been solid since being called up in late-May.

Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Cole De Vries will likely miss the remainder of the 2012 season with a cracked rib, according to 1500 ESPN. De Vries was injured upon being struck with a line drive in the Twins' Sept. 8 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

De Vries has been solid for Minnesota since making his big league debut in May, as he has posted a record of 5-5 with a 4.11 ERA while striking out six batters per nine innings and walking less than two. In the game in which he suffered the injury, De Vries tossed six shutout innings. He had a 2.63 ERA across his final five starts of the season.

Despite losing De Vries, the Twins still have two serviceable starters at the top of their rotation to finish out the year, as Scott Diamond (11-7, 3.46 ERA) and Samuel Deduno (6-3, 3.55 ERA) are enjoying a fair amount of success this season.
