Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins underwent minor surgery on his left wrist on Thursday, the team announced Saturday night.
Hand specialist Randall Culp removed a ganglion cyst from Rollins' wrist. The Phillies' release said Rollins will have stitches removed from the surgical area within the next two weeks.
Rollins, 32, is coming off an injury-ravaged season that limited him to 88 games and is entering the final year of the six-year contract he signed in 2005. - Bob Brookover
