Tampa Bay rookie Brandon Lowe is out for the season, manager Kevin Cash told the media on Thursday.

Lowe had not played since July 2 due to a shin injury. He was in the middle of a rehab assignment and working his way back before suffering a quad injury on Wednesday, according to the Tampa Bay Times’ Marc Topkin.

Lowe, 25, was in the middle of an impressive season that had him as a leading contender to win American League Rookie of the Year. He was batting .276 with an .862 OPS, 17 doubles and 16 home runs.

Eric Sogard, who was acquired by Tampa Bay before the trade deadline last month, is batting .321 with a .977 OPS since the trade and will continue to play second base in Lowe’s absence.
