SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Mariners announced Wednesday that minor league outfielder Kyle Lewis, the team’s first-round draft pick in 2016, injured his knee and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Lewis, 21, a two-time Southern Conference player of the year at Mercer, was the 11th overall pick in last month’s draft.

He was injured Tuesday in a collision at home plate while playing for the Class-A Everett Aqua Sox and tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), as well as a medial and lateral meniscus in his right knee.

Lewis was hitting .299 with three homers, eight doubles, five triples and 26 RBIs in 30 games with Everett in the Northwest League.
