Report: Utley Has Hip Injury

David Murphy reports Chase Utley has a hip injury.

From GM Pat Gillick:

“Chase has been bothered by a little bit of an injury that he’s been playing with. (He’s) having a little bit of a problem with his hip. It’s been a little bit sore. Nothing to keep him out of the lineup, but certainly if it’s sore a little bit it could have some effect on his hitting.”

Since July 3, Utley is 17-for-68 (.250). We’ve been wondering why he has struggled – really, since May – but have erred on the side of just slumping. Now it’s becoming evident there’s something even greater that’s hampering Utley’s ability to remain an offensive force. This needs to be addressed.
