After leaving Saturday's game with what appeared a painful foot injury, Red Sox reliever Andrew Miller's season is over, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

After Saturday's injury, initial reports indicated it was feared Miller had a Lisfranc injury involving either bone or ligaments. Whatever has been discovered was deemed serious enough to need season-ending surgery.

So the Red Sox lose another relief pitcher. Closer Joel Hanrahan was lost for the season back in early May and left-hander Franklin Morales is currently on the DL.

Miller, 28, has a 2.64 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and a whopping 48 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings (14.1 K/9) this season.
