SHORT ON starting pitching depth - and with a five-man rotation full of question marks - the Phillies added an interesting name to the mix last night. The Phillies came to an agreement on a 1-year, $1.5 million contract with righthander Chad Billingsley. The deal includes performance bonuses. Billingsley, 30, has pitched in only two big-league games since the 2012 season. He missed the entire 2014 season recovering from both Tommy John surgery (performed in April 2013) and an operation on his right flexor tendon (June 2014)

FIRST THERE was going to be surgery, then it wasn't so certain, but now it is. Last Friday, the 76ers announced that Tony Wroten, who made missed the previous five games with what they termed a knee sprain, had a partially torn ACL in his right knee and that surgery would be required to fix it. Then on Monday in New Orleans, Wroten told reporters that he might not need to have the surgery after all. Last night, before the team's win over the...

Tony Wroten decided that having surgery is his best option. The 76ers reserve point guard just doesn't know when and where he'll have the procedure to repair a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. "I can't play with a partial tear to the ACL with the way I play, so it's best to get the surgery," Wroten said Wednesday before the Sixers played Detroit at the Wells Fargo Center. The third-year veteran said he didn't know how long he would be sidelined.

WHAT WAS expected has come true, and the news is not good for the 76ers. The team announced yesterday that guard Tony Wroten has a tear of the ACL in his right knee that will require surgery. There is no date for the surgery or timetable for his return, the team said, but it is a very good bet the Sixers' leading scorer will be sidelined for the rest of the season. Wroten tore the same ACL during his junior year in high school while playing football. He missed that year of basketball, but returned to play his senior year.

You may have seen it performed in real time on ABC's Good Morning America . Or maybe you caught actor Hugh Jackman telling David Letterman about having it. Or you may be among the legions of people who have personally undergone it. It is Mohs micrographic surgery, the preferred treatment for the two most common types of skin cancer: basal cell and squamous cell. Although rarely life-threatening, these tumors can become disfiguring without timely removal, and they are being diagnosed at the staggering clip of more than four million a year.

WASHINGTON Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is scheduled to have surgery on his right shoulder today, a person familiar with the situation said yesterday. The source, who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no announcement about the operation had been made, said Werth is expected to be ready by the start of the regular season in April. The 35-year-old Werth was troubled by his right shoulder in early August, when he sat out a week for the NL East champions.

ON YESTERDAY'S Preston and Steve show, longtime WMMR morning host SteveĀ  Morrison revealed that he had undergone surgery for prostate cancer. Morrison, who missed only three days of work after robotically having his prostate removed, is now cancer-free. "Four or five hours after the surgery, I was walking around," Morrison told me. "The next day I was doing 2 or 3 miles on the treadmill. " Morrison said he decided to go public with his diagnosis because he wanted to raise awareness for the simple tests that could catch prostate cancer in its early stages.

Richie Hartzel's friend meant no harm during the sleepover last January when he started rat-tailing a towel at the 13-year-old's back. But in that critical fraction of a second when what-ifs become what-nows, Richie turned to look over his shoulder. The tip of the towel snapped into his left eye, detonating in the cornea, the eye's outer layer, and ripping the iris that controls the amount of light that enters the eye. Richie's parents rushed over to drive him to the hospital and found that their son's entire eye had gone horrifyingly black.

I HAD THE Mutter Museum all wrong. And I'd bet a jar of human skin - which is apparently stored somewhere inside the museum and smells like Romano cheese - that I'm not alone. Ever since I moved to Philadelphia, the museum has always been a place that people have insisted was a must-see as they gleefully ticked off a long list of macabre displays: a two-headed baby floating in formaldehyde, the corpse of a woman called the "Soap Lady," diseased kidneys and livers and any number of anatomical medical oddities to make you go ewww . Gee, I thought, where do I sign up?

Trent Cole underwent surgery on his fractured left hand and will miss the game Saturday against the Washington Redskins, coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday. Cole had a plate inserted into his hand. His status for the Dec. 28 regular-season finale against the New York Giants remains undetermined. Brandon Graham will start in Cole's place at outside linebacker. Graham, a former first-round pick, has been a reserve for Cole and Connor Barwin throughout the season. Graham has 34 tackles and has matched a career high with 51/2 sacks this season while playing 39 percent of the defensive snaps.
