Montero Done For Playoffs

From George A. King III:
Yankees top prospect Jesus Montero will miss the remainder of Scranton/Wilkes Barre’s playoff series against Columbus after undergoing a procedure on his ankle Wednesday night.

The heavily-hyped catcher suffered a bone bruise and decided to have the discoloring scraped out. The injury is not considered serious and Montero could possibly return if the Yankees Triple-A affiliate can get past Columbus in the best-of-five International League series, which they trail 1-0. 
RAB is reporting that Brian Cashman said on 1050 ESPN radio that Montero will miss the rest of the season. This isn't a major injury so there's no concern going forward.
