CLEARWATER, Fla. (CBS) – Philadelphia Phillies’ outfielder Domonic Brown has undergone successful surgery on his injured right hand.

The Phillies say a small bone was removed, and the stitches will come out in ten days to two weeks.  So, they say, he could be back to playing baseball in 4-6 weeks.

Brown injured his hand on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Phillies did not provide a medical update on second baseman Chase Utley, who has been out of the lineup the entire spring with tendinitis in his right knee (see previous story).
