He's been horrible for months. Hiding an injury?

there have been talks, from announcers mostly. they keep saying a guy with such compact swing doesn't go through long slumps unless he's hiding injuries.

If you take out his April (and 1 March game) He's hitting .257 with 19 HR and 60 RBI, however what's even worse is that he had a pretty good May also. So for the past 3 Months, Chases' line is .256 with 11 HR and 34 RBI. So actually Utley has been horrible for months.

Earlier in the year he was rumored to have a hip injury, and I'm pretty sure he's still playing through it, and will continue to play through it for the rest of the year because the Phillies need him for a playoff push.

Thank you. Saved me the time to type this. :-b

But what I figured...just speculation, nothing definitive.
