A’s Reddick, Gray to have surgery

Carlos Osorio/APA’s starting pitcher Jesse Chavez takes his hat off after being relieved in the sixth inning of Wednesday’s loss in Detroit.

A’s outfielder Josh Reddick and A’s pitcher Sonny Gray are expected to undergo surgery to repair injuries, the A’s announced Monday.

Reddick was limited to 114 games because of a troublesome right wrist injury and hit just .226 with 12 homers this season. He is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on that wrist.

Gray will have surgery to repair the torn thumb ligament in his nonpitching hand. Gray injured his glove hand on a comebacker by Detroit’s Prince Fielder in a 3-0 Game 5 loss Thursday in the AL Division Series, which ended Oakland’s season. He underwent an MRI exam Friday. The date of surgery is yet to be determined.

Gray went 5-3 with a 2.67 ERA during the regular season and was 1-1 in the postseason.

A’s pitcher Jarrod Parker apparently will be able to avoid surgery on his strained right forearm. Parker posted a 12-8 record and 3.97 ERA in 32 starts this season.
