Utley Will Return Wednesday


Soon guys, soon.

ORIGINAL 6/24 — Chase Utley could be flying north in less than a week.

A source told CSN’s Jim Salisbury that the Phillies hope to have Utley back in their lineup by Wednesday, June 27 against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Utley played eight innings at second base on Saturday, the second straight day he played eight innings in the field for the Clearwater Threshers of Single A. That feat was said to be a major step in the right direction for Utley’s readiness.

Utley could make one more rehab start with Triple A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

In nine games for Clearwater, Utley was 5-for-32 (.156) with a homer and five RBIs.
