Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon will undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist next week, the team announced Friday.

The 32-year-old hasn’t played since June 14. He was removed from a contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers after aggravating his wrist during a swing.

Angels head trainer Mike Frostad said Rendon has a subluxed tendon in his right wrist, which he attempted to play through, according to MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger. The injury is expected to sideline Rendon for four-to-six months.

Rendon hasn’t appeared in more than 60 games in any of his three seasons with the Angels, although the 2020 campaign was shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He inked a seven-year, $245-million contract with the team ahead of the 2020 season. The Texas native has produced a .252/.359/.421 slash line with 20 home runs and 89 RBIs since signing with the Angels.

He still has four years and $154 million left on his deal.
