Indiana starting pitcher Kyle Hart will miss the remainder of the season, a big blow to the Hoosiers.

Indiana pitcher Kyle Hart, the Hoosiers' number two starter, will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the remainder of the season, the school announced Monday.

"This is a tough break for Kyle, but surgery is the best option for him right now," Indiana manager Tracy Smith said in a statement. "We look forward to Kyle returning better than ever and leading our pitching staff in 2015."

Hart with 3-1 with a 2.29 ERA in six starts and nine overall appearances this season. He also earned a save. Hart was the Big Ten Pitcher of the week in back-to-back weeks March 17 and 24, and he allowed only three earned runs in 28.1 innings in the month of March.

It's a significant blow to the Hoosiers, who have been playing incredibly well lately.
