Utley DL Stint Appears Likely – Phillies Nation

Utley DL Stint Appears Likely



According to the beats down in Miami with the Phillies, it appears likely Chase Utley will find himself on the disabled list soon. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Chase Utley swung for the first time in batting practice Tuesday and it did not feel right. He took a second hack, then another, and one more. That is when he went to Charlie Manuel and told him his right side hurt.

“It definitely scared me a little bit,” Utley said Wednesday.

More bad news for the Phillies, who have been crushed by the injury bug. Add Utley to the bloated list including Roy Halladay, Carlos Ruiz, John Lannan, and Mike Adams.

Adams could return by Wednesday, Rich Dubee told the Inky. He’s scheduled to pitch in a rehab game in Clearwater on Monday.

    What I’m interested to see is where Cesar Hernandez’s name fits in with replacement possibility discussions. The lack of need for a backup doesn’t help his cause, and I sure don’t see him regularly, but just from what appears to be his growth and skill set, he sure appears ready to get some Show exposure to show what he’s got.

    It’d be one thing to hear about a lack of need for a 2nd baseman. Hearing a lack of desire to interrupt his progress and development would cause the eyes to roll toward the sky.

    Assuming there’s a DL stint in order.

      Is he on the 40-man roster? If not, they probably won’t free up a spot to put him on. Are you ready for some more Mini Mart?

    Hopefully this won’t detract from his value at the trade deadline.

    Chase has been fun to watch again, as always. Damn, I miss him already.
