Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Ben Revere is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday for a broken right foot.

The Phillies said Monday his recovery time will be 6-to-8 weeks.

Revere was hurt during the 11th inning in the opener of Saturday's doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox when he fouled a pitch off the inside of his right foot.

The 25-year-old speedster will likely be sidelined until at least September. He is batting .305 with 22 stolen bases in 88 games this season, his first with Philadelphia.
