Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Michael Stutes is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday.

Stutes will have fraying cleaned out from his shoulder. The good news is that he isn’t believed to have any serious damage to his rotator cuff, but there’s still a chance that he could miss the rest of the season.

Stutes made his major league debut last season and posted a 3.63 ERA and 58/28 K/BB ratio over 62 innings out of the Phillies’ bullpen. The 25-year-old right-hander allowed six runs (four earned) in 5 2/3 innings over his first six appearances this season before landing on the disabled list on April 21.

    he was so good during the first half of last season…such a shame this had to happen…but I guess if this were to happen, this year would be the perfect year to do it…
