Outstanding rookie Mike Leake will not be a part of his team as they make their first playoff appearance in 15 years.

This is from the Cincinnati Reds Team Report on Yahoo! Sports:

RHP Mike Leake won't pitch again this season, and he won't be on the postseason roster, manager Dusty Baker said. Leake, Cincinnati's first-round pick in 2009, hasn't pitched since Aug. 24 due to fatigue in his right shoulder. He finishes the season 8-4 with a 4.23 ERA in 24 games, the first 22 as a starter.

It is a shame he will not take part, but I would rather see him have more than just one halfway decent year.
