Phillies recall Utley, option Duckworth


August 13, 2003
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Phillies sent struggling right-hander Brandon Duckworth to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre after Philadelphia's 11-4 victory over Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

Amaury Telemaco will take Duckworth's spot in the rotation and will face St. Louis on Sunday night. He won't be officially activated until Sunday.

Second baseman Chase Utley was recalled to take Duckworth's roster spot. He'll start Thursday night, moving Placido Polanco to third base. Third baseman David Bell has been on the disabled list since July 11 with a back and hip injury, and his return is uncertain.

Duckworth was 4-7 with a 5.04 ERA in 18 starts. Telemaco was 10-9 with a 3.24 ERA at Triple-A.

Utley, the 15th overall pick in the 2000 amateur draft, began the season on Philadelphia's roster. In his second stint with the Phillies, he hit a grand slam for his first hit in the majors in a 9-1 victory over Colorado on April 24.

Utley hit .323 with 26 doubles, 18 homers and 77 RBIs in 113 games at Scranton.

Do you guys think Utley will hit the ground running and blast a few in the final weeks? I was going to take a chance on him b/c it sounds like he was having a good time down in triple A.

No problem guys. I'll 'bump' this to make sure that deep league owners are aware of the situation. ;-)
