Stutes set for shoulder surgery on Tuesday
PHILADELPHIA -- Right-hander Michael Stutes will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder on Tuesday, the Phillies announced on Saturday. Dr. Lewis Yocum will perform the surgery.

Stutes had not been progressing as the Phillies would've liked, and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. had said on Tuesday that there was a chance the reliever would have some type of exploratory surgery.

Stutes pitched in only six games this season (0-0, 6.35 ERA) before going on the disabled list on April 22 with what was described as right shoulder inflammation. In 2011, his rookie season, Stutes was 6-2 with a 3.63 ERA in 57 games.

The Phillies' bullpen is also without the services of David Herndon, who had season-ending Tommy John surgery, and Jose Contreras, who is likely out for the season with an elbow injury that will also require surgery.
