Tyrell Jenkins Injury: Top Prospect Hurts Shoulder, Will Miss Rest Of The Season

St. Louis Cardinals pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins will miss the rest of his season after suffering a shoulder injury in Friday night's game with the low-A Quad Cities River Bandits. Jenkins struck out the first two Kane County batters he faced before clutching his right shoulder in pain on Friday night.

The extent and the exact nature of Jenkins' injury have not been announced yet, but Quad-Cities manager Luis Aguayo told the Quad-City Times that he will be shut down for the rest of the season.

The 19-year old pitching prospect struck out 80 batters in 82 innings and allowed 36 walks. SB Nation's Minor League Blog ranked Jenkins as the Cardinals No. 3 prospect in late July. Jenkins has had problems with staying healthy in the past, but his upside and youth are keeping the Cardinals organization and its fans optimistic.
