Auburn pitcher/utility player Justin Bryant will have surgery on his throwing arm and miss the remainder of the season, the school announced Friday.
Bryant, a senior from Remlap, Ala., started three games in left field and one as a designated hitter this season, batting .182 in 11 at bats with two RBIs. He hit .323 in 99 at bats last year, with 5 home runs and 32 RBIs.
The right-handed reliever pitched in one game this year, striking out two in a four-out save.
Dr. James Andrews will perform the surgery on Bryant during the next week.
