TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Florida State University Baseball ace and Lincoln alum Tyler Holton will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the season.

The FSU junior will have surgery to reconstruct his ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, also known as Tommy John surgery.

Holton shared the news Wednesday afternoon on Instagram:

Holton, a junior for the Noles, went 10-3 with 2.34 ERA last year - both starting pitching staff bests for FSU - in 18 starts. Holton also logged two complete games while compiling 144 strikeouts compared to just 31 walks.

When he wasn't on the mound, Holton played in the outfield and hit .244 at the plate.

Holton was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the 35th round of this past June's MLB Draft, but opted to return to FSU.
