OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Athletics rookie right-hander Sonny Gray will have surgery on his left thumb to repair a torn ligament.

Gray injured his glove hand on a comebacker by Detroit's Prince Fielder in a 3-0 Game 5 loss in the A: division series Thursday night, which ended Oakland's season. He underwent an MRI exam Friday. The date of surgery is yet to be determined.

In addition, 2012 Gold Glove right fielder Josh Reddick is likely to have arthroscopic surgery on a sprained right wrist that twice landed him on the disabled list for the two-time reigning AL West champion A's. Reddick will be examined by Dr. Mark Belsky, a hand specialist in Newton, Mass., who performed surgery on Reddick's left wrist in November 2011.

Right-hander Jarrod Parker will rest a strain in his right forearm.
