Tyler Colvin Out for the Season

Tyler Colvin will miss the remainder of the season after being impaled by the broken end of Welington Castillo’s bat on Sunday afternoon. Colvin was hospitalized and will remain in a Miami hospital for the next two to three days.

Colvin is in stable condition and is being treated for pneumothorax, a puncture of the chest cavity, which allowed air into the chest wall and the potential of a collapsed lung. According to a report from the Tribune, “a tube was inserted into the wound, and Colvin is resting comfortably.”

Tyler Colvin put together a very good rookie season after fighting for playing time early in the year. In 135 games (358 at bats), Colvin hit .254 with a .316/.500/.816 line. Colvin hit 18 doubles, five triples and became the fourth rookie in Cubs history to hit 20 home runs.
