Former All-Star and Phillies catcher Darren Daulton has been diagnosed with two brain tumors and will undergo surgery next week, according to an Associated Press report out of Philadelphia.

Daulton, 51, played nearly all of his 14 seasons with the Phillies, and he was on three All-Star teams (1992, '93 and '95).

He was a key part of the Phillies' National League pennant-winning team in 1993 and finished his career with the World Series champion Marlins in 1997.

The AP report indicated that Daulton, who has hosted a radio show on 97.5 The Fanatic for the last four years in Philadelphia, had not been feeling well the last two weeks before he saw a doctor.
