Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Phillies backup catcher Todd Pratt underwent successful knee surgery on Friday and will be out of action for almost a month.

The procedure was performed by team physician Dr. Michael Ciccotti, who repaired a torn meniscus at the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia.

Pratt is expected to return to Florida for rehab in Clearwater.

The 36-year-old hit .272 in 43 games as Mike Lieberthal's backup this past season. Pratt also had four home runs and 20 RBI, including a dramatic, walk- off pinch-homer in the bottom of the 13th inning against the Red Sox on June 21.

In parts of 11 major league seasons, Pratt has a .255 career average with 35 home runs and 166 RBI in 495 games.
