Baltimore Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis is scheduled to undergo surgery to  remove a broken hamate bone from his right wrist, reports MLB.com.

Markakis faces a recovery time of 2-4 weeks and was believed to be injured during a slide a week ago. He said he felt a tweak in an at-bat on Tuesday.

"If you had told me that was what it was going to be, I would have signed up for it in blood," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "It's not that bad."

Markakis is batting .256 with eight homers, 26 RBIs in 50 games this season.

Markakis will likely end up on the disabled list. The Orioles play the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend in St. Petersburg.
