Utley Begins Rehab Assignment Tonight

Chase UtleyThe Phillies announced this morning Chase Utley will begin a rehab assignment tonight with Double-A Reading.

He had been scheduled to begin his rehab last night, but rain prevented that.

Don’t expect this to take very long. Probably just two or three games for Utley, who has not played since May 20 because of a strained right oblique. Remember, he played only nine rehab games after missing nearly three months of the season last year because of an injured knee. He has missed just a month this year, so that’s why I say just two or three games. I would be stunned if he’s not back before the end of the weekend.


Hopefully he comes back swinging like it was 2006 so we can cash in on it come the 7/31 deadline. Although I fear a painfully slow recovery that only adds to his steady decline…

Can’t hurt
