The A’s announced that right fielder Josh Reddick underwent successful surgery Wednesday on his sprained right wrist and should be ready for the start of spring training.

Reddick spent two stints on the disabled list this season and played in just 114 games due to problems with the wrist. He originally hurt it when he crashed into a wall trying to catch a foul pop-up in Houston during the first week of the regular season.

Reddick’s procedure was performed in Newton, Mass., by Dr. Mark Belsky, the same doctor who handled surgery on the outfielder’s left wrist in November 2011.

Reddick hit .226 with 12 home runs and 56 RBI this season, a sharp drop-off from the 32 homers and 85 RBI he posted in 2012 in his first season with the A’s. But he enjoyed another stellar defensive season, being named a Gold Glove finalist in right field after winning the award in 2012.
