Orioles outfield prospect Henry Urrutia will undergo sports hernia surgery on Tuesday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

He will have the procedure in Philadelphia and it will be performed by Dr. William Meyers.

Urrutia hasn’t been in the Triple-A Norfolk lineup since April 27 and was hitting .220/.250/.293 with no homers and seven RBIs in 20 games for the Tides.

The 27-year-old Urrutia had been dealing with the injury for more than two weeks and tried playing through it. That could partially explain Urrutia’s slow start to the season after a strong spring training.
