Comcast Sports Net Philly reported that Chase Utley should return to Philadelphia on Monday.
This is HUGE considering the circumstances the Phillies have been face in the first quarter of the 2011 season. Despite a first place record, the offense has been struggling greatly, especially from the second base position.
Utley has started in four straight games for the Clearwater Threshers, Philadelphia’s extended Spring Training Single A team in Florida.
If Utley returns Monday, the Phils will be on the start of a four-game series with Cincinnati. Monday’s starter is Bronson Aroyo, who Utley is 4-for-9 with a homer against in his career.
