It’s just another step, so perhaps that is why Chase Utley looked a little perturbed/surprised that we wanted to talk to him today.
But Utley, who is recovering from surgery on his right hip, took BP in the batting cage at Bright House Field both Thursday and today.
“It went well,” Utley said.
How many hacks?
“700,” he deadpanned.
“No. Sixty. Does 60 sound good? Yeah, probably 60.”
(Phillies head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan watched him the entire time.)
