BALTIMORE (AP) — Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis has a hamate fracture of his right wrist and will undergo surgery on Friday in Sarasota, Fla.

The procedure will be performed by Dr, Brian Schofield, a hand specialist.

The injury is believed to have occurred more than a week ago when Markakis slid into a base. He then aggravated his ailing wrist during his final at-bat Tuesday in Toronto.

The typical recovery time from this kind of surgery is 3-4 weeks.

This will be the first trip to the disabled list for the 28-year-old Markakis, one of Baltimore’s most durable players. He played in at least 160 games in each of the previous three seasons and has never participated in fewer than 147 in a single season since coming into the league in 2006.
