Chase Utley to go to Florida for extended spring training

There is still no timetable for his return, but there is progress of sorts on the Chase Utley rehab front: he’s heading to Clearwater for extended spring training. Hitting first, but then eventually some fielding.

The fielding is the problem, as his knee problems hurt his lateral movement.  So I suppose it’s not yet time to get excited.  But it’s not nothing, and after so much nothing, that’s something.

Um, I think. I’m confused too. Sorry.

    Power hitter at a position that is not known for power hitters that mysteriously breaks down in his joints and is very private about the entire things….hmmm…..

      You know you’ve failed at trolling when you’ve commented on a Phillies related post and haven’t gotten a response in over an hour….

        Is that a record?

        I can’t imagine that it’s not.

        Can’t wait to see Utley back in the game..he’s been sitting in my fantasy team’s DL spot long enough

        I can’t wait to see the man play, either. As Harry the K said, “Chase Utley, you ARE the man!”

    Move him to the outfield.

    When he gets back please trade that cocky attitude DEFENSIVE playing no hitting shortstop Jimmy Rollins, move Galvis where he belongs and get a real power bat if that means also getting rid of Victorino let it happen.
