"Obviously it's rough, but I'm just trying to think about getting back stronger and doing everything I can to come back healthy," Gosewisch said. "I knew the possibility was there for season-ending and it's rough, but not much I can do about it now."

The catcher suffered the injury in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals after running out a ground ball in the sixth inning. He was batting .211 in 38 games in his first full season as the team's starting catcher.

"It's awful, sad," Arizona manager Chip Hale said. "Guy's busted his tail to get where he's at, did a great job helping our [pitching] staff get better, and now he's lost. It just stinks for him."
