Boston Red Sox outfielder Josh Reddick has apparently had enough of his chronic wrist injury.

That's because the 24-year-old Georgia peach underwent surgery on Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 15, 2011) to repair torn cartilage in his wrist.

ESPN has the report:

Reddick, who has dealt with a wrist issue in the past, was also drilled in the left hand by a pitch during a game on Sept. 4 against the Texas Rangers where he went 4-for-4 with a double, scored three runs and reached base for a career-high five times to help Boston to a 12-7 victory that day.

Reddick is scheduled for three weeks of rest before beginning a month-long rehab program and is expected to be ready for spring training.

"It's all good," the source said.

Reddick played 87 games for the BoSox in 2011, batting .280 with seven homers and 28 RBIs. He's expected to make a run for the 2012 starting line-up in spring training.
