He's been looking good lately, and should be ready soon. He's started a max-20 day rehab assignment, but many are predicting he'll be back for the Phillies next homestand. At least this is what I heard watching the Phillies pregame last night. If this prediction is true, that would be next Wednesday, May 18th. http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/ ... t-tonight/http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/707 ... 8qj76FCLcF
May 10 - 2B Chase Utley, who has been sidelined with chronic right knee pain since late February, began an official rehab assignment. He went 1-for-4 with a single at Class A Clearwater. But more important than the stats was the beginning of an official rehab assignment. Utley has to be activated within 20 days, meaning he'll join the Phillies no later than May 30.
May 11 - Utley (knee) went 1-for-4 in his first rehab game with High-A Clearwater Tuesday.
Recommendation: "The knee felt good" Utley told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I didn't get to do a whole lot of activity." Utley was used as a DH Tuesday rather than playing in the field. Utley will get a day off Wednesday and was uncertain when he would next play. "I still have to talk to some people," he said.
