PHILADELPHIA: Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh underwent surgery on his left knee on Friday and is expected to return to action in three to four weeks. The Phillies said Marsh will be ready by the March 28 opener at Citizens Bank Park.

Marsh is slated to open the season as the Phillies’ starting left fielder. The Phillies also have Nick Castellanos in right field and Johan Rojas in center.

The Phillies are poor in organizational outfield depth and could use Jake Cave and Cristian Pache in Marsh’s absence.

Marsh hit .277 with 12 home runs and 60 RBI last season in his first full season with the Phillies. A fan favorite with his long beard, Marsh has 25 homers and 131 game-winning hits in 337 career games for the Los Angeles Angels and Phillies.

Marsh had three hits in Game 4 of the 2022 NL Championship Series against Atlanta, helping send the Phillies to their first World Series since 2009.
