Donald to Have Surgery, Marson on the DL
The Phillies temporarily have lost top prospects Jason Donald and Lou Marson to injuries.
Donald, who has been mentioned in recent trade rumors with the Red Sox for right-hander Brad Penny, is scheduled to have surgery Monday for a torn meniscus in his left knee. He is expected to miss three to four weeks.
Lehigh Valley also placed Marson on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised right foot.
Donald had been hitting .230 with one home run and 16 RBIs in 204 at-bats. He had struck out 52 times and walked just eight. Marson had been hitting .232 with one homer and eight RBIs in 112 at-bats.
