No timetable yet for Chase Utley’s return

General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. updated Chase Utley‘s status yesterday, although there really wasn’t a whole lot to update.

Amaro told Todd Zolecki of MLB.com that Utley “is moving forward” with his rehab from chronic knee problems and “his strength seems to be improving.”

However, there’s still no timetable for Utley’s return and so far there isn’t even any talk of him seeing game action at extended spring training.

Utley and the Phillies haven’t exactly been forthcoming about his status throughout all this, but his being able to simply workout again without significant discomfort is a positive development at the very least.

    Utley is finished, he is never going to be an everyday player again.

    Dang it! Utley’s Hair, I thought you were going tell Utley’s Knee to behave and get things worked out

      I don’t have any direct contact with Utley’s Knee any more, what with all the attention mongering of recent years, but I did mention the need to get in line and back to work to Utley’s Ear, but I guess it didn’t work.

        He better be careful, he keeps that up he’s going to be replaced.

    Hm, Philadelphia. Player in decline. Ruben Amaro. Sounds like it’s time for a 5 year, $100 million contract extension.

    Stick a fork in Utley, he done!
