J.T. Realmuto

Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right knee Wednesday in Philadelphia, the team announced.

The Phillies also placed the three-time All-Star on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to Monday. The team did not announce a timeline for his return.

Realmuto, 33, sat out three games in a row from May 12-14 with right knee soreness.

He is batting .261 with seven homers and 20 RBIs in 51 games this season. He had hit in a career-best 17 straight games in which he played earlier this season.

Realmuto is a career .272 hitter with 161 homers and 598 RBIs in 1,191 games with the Miami Marlins (2014-18) and Phillies.

Also on Tuesday, the Phillies recalled catcher Rafael Marchan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Marchan, 25, had one major league stint with the Phillies earlier this season but did not appear in a game.

He batted .233 with two homers and eight RBIs in 13 games this season split between Class A Clearwater and Lehigh Valley.
