From MASN’s Roch Kubatko comes word that Orioles infielder Chris Davis will have sports hernia surgery soon after the end of the regular season.

Davis is playing third base in Wednesday night’s season finale against the Red Sox, just as he’s done for the majority of this month, but he’ll go under the knife within a week of the game’s conclusion.

The 25-year-old former top prospect batted just .265/.301/.398 with five home runs and 19 RBI across 206 plate appearances this season between the Rangers and O’s. But Davis is a .318/.375/.597 career minor-league hitter and may have a future as a big-league regular with Baltimore.
