Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins underwent minor surgery Thursday on his left wrist, the team announced Saturday night.

Hand specialist Dr. 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.
