Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard will not play again this season after suffering a broken toe, the team announced.

Howard dropped a lead pipe he swings as a warm-up bat on his toe while on deck on Thursday. The Phillies have already been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and the Phillies have only five games left.

Howard played 71 games this season after missing the first part of the year rehabbing a torn Achilles injury he suffered on the final at-bat of the 2011 season.

Howard finishes the season with a .219 batting average, 14 homers and 56 RBIs.
