The Oakland A’s announced Friday that infielder Rangel Ravelo underwent successful surgery on his right wrist.
The partial ECU tendon repair was performed by Dr. Mark Leber at the Gateway Surgery Center in Phoenix, Ariz. Ravelo will not participate in baseball activity for the next 6-8 weeks and a full recovery is expected. He is resting comfortably in Phoenix.
Originally drafted by the White Sox in the sixth round of the 2010 draft, the 22-year-old infielder was acquired by the A's from Chicago this past offseason along with Marcus Semien, Josh Phegley and Chris Bassitt for Jeff Samardzija and Michael Ynoa.
Ravelo is the No. 9 prospect in the A's organization, according to Baseball America.
He's spent the last five seasons in the minors, appearing in 421 games. During that stretch, Ravelo has hit 18 home runs and 222 RBI for a .301 average.
Ravelo had an RBI double in his only at-bat for the Athletics this spring.
