Posted July 15, 2013 on AP on Fox
Phillies center fielder Ben Revere will have surgery Tuesday on his broken right foot and is expected to miss six to eight weeks. Revere broke his foot on a foul ball before hitting into a double play to end Philadelphia's 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox in Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday. Acquired from Minnesota last offseason, Revere started slow with the Phillies. But he raised his average to .305 from .200 on May 1 and had a 10-game hitting streak before getting hurt. John Mayberry Jr. started the last two games in Revere's place and hit a game-tying, solo homer in one game and had a game-winning RBI single in extra innings Sunday. Still, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. will be looking for outfield help.
