CINCINNATI -- Reds outfielder Chris Dickerson will have surgery to remove part of a bone in his right hand and repair his right wrist.

Dickerson went on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a broken bone in the wrist and hand area. The club will have a better idea of how long he'll be sidelined following the surgery Monday. Doctors will remove part of the hamate bone in his hand.

Dickerson batted .227 with no homers or RBIs during nine games this season. The wrist has been bothering him for a while.
