Houston Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn right hamstring, the team announced on Tuesday.

Valbuena, who has been out since July 27, had a setback in his recovery on Aug. 19 during his rehab assignment. The 30-year-old was having a productive season before his injury, hitting .260/.357/.459 with 13 home runs and 40 RBIs.

In his absence, the team has relied on top prospect Alex Bregman, who has been heating up as of late, hitting .375/.412/.813 in his last seven games.
