The Phillies announced that three players will undergo surgery in the coming days.

According to a press release,  righthander Brad Lidge is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday to remove a loose body from his right elbow. Team physician Dr. Michael Ciccotti will perform the surgery. Lidge will also have his right flexor/pronator tendon evaluated.

Outfielder Raul Ibanez is scheduled for surgery Monday to repair a sports hernia. Dr. Bill Meyers will perform the surgery. Meyers, a noted abdominal surgery based at Drexel, also has repaired the sports hernias of several Eagles, including Donovan McNabb, Kevin Curtis, LJ Smith and Dirk Johnson, and the Flyers' Danny Briere.

Lefthander Scott Eyre is also scheduled for surgery Monday with Ciccotti to remove loose bodies from his left elbow.
