Chase Utley could head to extended spring training soon
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel told David Hale of the Wilmington News Journal earlier today that he believes Chase Utley could soon head to extended spring training to continue his rehab.
Utley has picked up workouts over the past week and has participated in two brief simulated games over the past three days.
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said there are no set plans to send Utley to extended spring training, but indicated that they’ll know more when they see how the knee responds tomorrow.
Entering play Tuesday, Phillies’ second basemen have combined to bat just .235/.286/.276 with zero homers, four doubles and a .561 OPS over 98 at-bats so far this season.
