Athletics first base prospect Rangel Ravelo will undergo surgery on his right wrist Friday, manager Bob Melvin told reporters on Thursday.
Ravelo, a righty, will have the operation done on his throwing arm.
The 22-year-old infielder was acquired by the A's in a trade that sent Jeff Samardzija and Michael Ynoa to the Chicago White Sox.
Oakland also netted catcher Josh Phegley, shortstop Marcus Semien and pitcher Chris Bassitt in the deal.

Ravelo was originally drafted by the White Sox in the sixth round of the 2010 MLB draft out of high school in Florida.
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.
