PHILADELPHIA (AP) - 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.
