Charlie Manuel was on MLB Network Radio a little while ago and he said he expects Chase Utley to return either July 2, 3, or 4.

I assume by then his bat will be in better order than it was in his 0 for 5 game yesterday. The real question, of course, is not the bat, but how he does at second base. Which is what really aggravated his knee in the past.

    You didn’t tell us what year, Chuck.

    I think he must be back up by July 2. Rules. 20 days for rehab assignments max, which makes it July 2.

    Any word if Charlie booooed when he heard about the 0-5?

      He did utter some sort of verbal response, but the Hawaiian was the only one to hear it, and it needs to be translated from Victorinese, back into the original Chuckese, and then into English. These things take TIME, dammit!!!!!

    It is too late. Furthermore, it does little to address the true problem devouring the team…..the bullpen is a damn joke. Pappelbon is Pappelbon and Bastardo is reliable but the rest of those jokers are incredibly unreliable. Seriously, Qualls, Savery, Diekman, Schwimmer, and now Rosenberg are last man in the bullpen type pitchers. Depressing to watch. Makes me long Stutes and Herndon…and that is saying something.
