(TSX / STATS) -- Seattle Mariners center fielder Jarrod Dyson will undergo season-ending surgery for a problem that is similar to a sports hernia, manager Scott Servais announced Monday.

Dyson sustained a groin injury last month, and team officials believed he was suffering from a sports hernia. He has not played in a game since Sept. 2.

The 33-year-old veteran hit .251 with five homers but also stole 28 bases and scored 56 runs this season. He played in 111 games, including 99 as a starter. Dyson was hitless in his past 12 at-bats.

Dyson should be fully recovered by spring training. He is eligible for free agency after the season.

The Mariners began Monday's action three games behind in the race for the second American League wild-card berth.
