Chase Utley cleared to start hitting again

Aug 11, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

Good news for the Phillies: Chase Utley has been cleared to swing a bat.

Utley was examined by his hand specialist today and was given the go-ahead. Assuming everything goes well once he starts hacking away he should be on course for an early
September return.

Wait, Utley doesn’t hack. That’s what makes him so damn good.
