Utley Scratched from Tonight’s Lineup

Chase UtleyJust another health issue for another Phillies player.

Chase Utley had to be scratched from tonight’s lineup because he felt discomfort on his right side during batting practice. The Phillies said Utley will be reevaluated tomorrow.

Freddy Galvis took his place at second base.

Utley has been one of the few bright spots for the team this season. He is hitting .272 with seven doubles, two triples, seven home runs and 25 RBIs in 44 games. He has an .814 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, which ranks sixth among 20 qualifying second basemen in baseball.

Utley has missed significant time each of the previous two seasons because of chronically injured knees, but he has said the knees have felt fine.

Did you ask Dave Montgomery why Amaro is still the GM after two horribly 2 years off season..(No Gillick ) .He is NOT up to the task,

“right side” that seems a little vague

At least it wasn’t his “wrong” side…..ba-dump!

Any update on whether Utley will miss any more time?

Chase has to realize that whatever he has to do to get a big contract in the coming offseason will also help the Phils’ run to the postseason. If Chase plays injured, he will be mediocre at best and horrible at worst. This will help no one. “Heal, rehab, and play” should be his mantra….
