Josh Reddick struggled with wrist problems for much the season and now Jane Lee of MLB.com reports that the A’s outfielder is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery soon.

Reddick was limited to just 114 games this season and saw his OPS drop 80 points compared to a strong 2012 campaign, hitting just .226 with 12 homers. He should have plenty of time to be ready for spring training.

In other A’s injury news: Sonny Gray will have surgery to repair the torn thumb ligament in his non-pitching hand and Jarrod Parker has been given a clean enough bill of health that he’s expected to avoid surgery on his forearm injury.

    Josh is a huge favorite of the right-field uber fans at the Mausoleum, and continued to play sparkling defense again this year. Here’s hoping his surgery is successful, the A’s will need his offense if they are ever to get past Detroit in future post-seasons.

    Yeah, playing through a wrist injury is neither fun nor smart. Ask Mark Teixeira as well
