Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips will have season-ending surgery Friday to have a pin inserted into his broken right index finger to help it heal properly.

Phillips broke the finger in Tuesday night’s game at Milwaukee when he was hit by a pitch on a bunt attempt. The Reds’ medical director, Dr. Timothy Kremchek, examined him Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Kremchek and hand specialist Dr. Andrew Markewicz will perform the surgery, the Reds said.
