ST. LOUIS – Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas will miss the rest of the season because of an injury to his throwing arm.

The 31-year-old right-hander will have surgery to repair his right flexor tendon.

Mikolas was slated to pitch for the Cardinals against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. He pitched four innings July 22 in an exhibition game against the Kansas City Royals at Busch Stadium.

The Cardinals had placed Mikolas on the 10-day Injured List less than two hours before making the announcement.
