Slowey has been on the disabled list since July 4 with a strained right wrist. He was trying to rehab the injury but suffered a setback Friday and was shut down. After consulting with team doctors the decision was made that the right-hander would have surgery to remove a bone chip in the wrist.
Slowey was 10-3 with a 4.86 ERA with 75 strikeouts and 15 walks this season.
