Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is likely done for the season, manager Kirk Gibson said Sunday according to a tweet from Nick Piecoro from AZCentral.com. 

The news comes just a day after the team put the two-time All-Star on the disabled list because of a fastball that had fractured his hand in Friday's 9-4 loss to the Pirates. Gibson said on Sunday that "realistically [the recovery time] is eight weeks. So he's done [for the season]."

SI WIRE: Giants expect outfielder Angel Pagan to return from disabled list this week 

Goldschmidt, who turns 27 next month, had missed just one game this season heading into the weekend. He played in 160 games last season, a year in which he finished second in NL MVP voting. 

The Diamondbacks are fourth in the NL West heading into Sunday afternoon's series finale vs. the Pirates.
