The Diamondbacks announced on Wednesday night that outfielder Socrates Brito underwent surgery to repair an open dislocation of his left ring finger. The 24-year-old suffered the injury while running the bases during Wednesday afternoon’s Cactus League game against Team Mexico.

Brito played all three outfield positions for the D-Backs last season, but didn’t do much with the bat as he hit .179/.196/.358 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 97 plate appearances. He was hoping to make the opening day roster but the injury will likely cost him that opportunity. The team does not yet have a timetable for Brito’s recovery.
