MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Cleveland Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo will miss the rest of the season after aggravating a left rib cage injury.

Choo was activated from the disabled list before Cleveland's game in Texas on Thursday, but he left the game in the second inning.

Indians manager Manny Acta said before Cleveland's game at Minnesota on Friday that Choo would miss the rest of the season.

Choo hit .259 with eight homers and 36 RBIs while being limited by injuries to 84 games. He had 22 homers and 90 RBIs last season.
