Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Ben Revere will have surgery on Tuesday to repair a broken right foot and he is expected to miss six to eight weeks, the team announced on Monday.

Revere broke his right foot by fouling off a ball during Philadelphia's 5-4 loss against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday during a day-night doubleheader. According to MLB.com reporter Todd Zolecki, the Phillies are said to be in the market for a center fielder after Revere's injury.

The Phillies acquired Revere in the offseason from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for right-handed pitchers Vance Worley and Trevor May.

After stumbling out of the gates in April by hitting just .200 during the month, Revere turned it around and raised his average to .305. He was riding a 10-game hitting streak before landing on the disabled list with a broken right foot. The speedy outfielder is fourth in the National League in stolen bases with 24 in 88 games played with the Phillies.
