Chase Utley is expected to be in the Phillies lineup tonight. And based on how he played for the Iron Pigs last night, he seems ready.
As Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com reports, Utley had himself a great game which, more importantly, made him look ready to contribute:
Chase Utley had two hits, smoked the ball three times, smashed a long home run to right-center, fielded two challenging chances flawlessly and sure looked ready to return to the major leagues.
Charlie Manuel said that Utley has the three-hole when he’s back in the Phillies lineup. Barring something unexpected, that should be this evening.
