CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Reds announced shortstop Zack Cozart is finished for the season after injuring his right knee at the game against the Philadelphia Philies Wednesday.

According to the Reds, he tore ligaments and the biceps tendon in his right knee. He is expected to have surgery Monday with rehab taking approximately nine months long.

“I feel for him,” said Reds backup shortstop and utility player Kristopher Negron. “I blew my knee out a few years back. I'm praying for him and hoping he's alright.”

Cozart was off to the best start of his career, and was on pace for personal bests in batting average (.258), on-base percentage (.310) and slugging (.459). He was a potential 2015 MLB All-Star candidate ranked fifth and receiving over 730,000 votes at shortstop.

Reds recalled IF Chris Dominguez (#15) and IF Eugenio Suarez (#7), optioned RHP Pedro Villarreal and placed on the 15-day DL SS Zack Cozart.

“We need our bench guys to come through,” Reds third baseman Todd Frazier said. “These guys are here for a reason. Let's see what they've got.”
