Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Carson Kelly has been a key source of offense despite underwhelming performances from other parts of the lineup. D-backs fans held their breath after Kelly was plunked by a pitch from Walker Buehler and the Los Angeles Dodgers in Saturday's game.

Well, any hopes that Kelly would avoid a serious injury have been extinguished.

Carson Kelly Injury Update

Kelly managed to stay in the game for an inning after his hit by pitch before being replaced. However, x-rays confirmed that the catcher suffered a broken wrist, which will shelve him indefinitely and put his season at risk.

It's nothing less than disappointing news. Kelly recorded 8 home runs and 26 RBI (both third on the team) while slashing .260/.385/.460.

Kelly's potential breakout year could now be over and leaves a massive hole in the D-backs' lineup. Backup Stephen Vogt will now be called upon to step up in his absence.
