OAKLAND -- First baseman Ike Davis will have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip and miss the rest of the season, A's manager Bob Melvin announced on Friday.
The news isn't a total shock after Davis revealed the extent of his hip pain on Wednesday. An MRI earlier this week showed the tear. The procedure will take place Thursday in Vail, Colo.
How much the injury impacted Davis' numbers is tough to pinpoint. But the left-handed hitter said his bad hip hindered his ability to turn on his back side when swinging.
Clearly, Davis' first season with the A's did not go as planned. He finished with a .229 average with three home runs and 20 RBI, and also missed roughly a month in the first half with a strained quad.
Davis made $3.8 million this season and will once again be eligible for arbitration this offseason.
The recently hot-hitting Mark Canha, Jake Smolinski and Stephen Vogt will split time at first base with Davis out.
