Baltimore Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis will have surgery on his hamate bone and will be out for three to four weeks, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN:

Here's how it originally happened:

He tweaked the wrist in his final at-bat of Tuesday's 8-6 loss to the Blue Jays.

"[It happened on a] swing, I don't know anything else," Markakis said. "I just swung, and it didn't feel good. It's not like I took an awkward swing or anything. I just swung and it didn't feel right."

Markakis will travel with the Orioles to St. Petersburg, where they will start a three-game set against the Rays on Friday, and have some tests performed on the wrist. He will undergo an MRI on Thursday morning and see a doctor in the afternoon.

Markakis didn't play Wednesday, the first game he's missed this year.
