Burrell to DL, who will get his AB?

Postby Iguana » Fri Aug 06, 2004 12:52 am

Any thoughts? I know they just traded Ledee, Byrd is back up, will Utley get additional AB?

Rotoworld says Michaels and Utley will fill in for him. I would expect Utley to get more AB's though.

Utley? Utley plays 2B and 1B. He won't fill in for Burrell in LF. Glanville and Michaels will probably fill in for him. Glanville did it the last two nights.

from Rotoworld.com:

Manager Larry Bowa announced after Wednesday's game that the Phillies would begin working out Chase Utley in leftfield.
Doug Glanville has started in left the last two games of Pat Burrell's absence. Utley is the best option to replace Burrell's bat, but his outfield defense needs work. ''If he's adequate or a little bit above, we might talk about it,'' Bowa said. Utley may earn a few more at-bats this way, but it doesn't sound like he's going to be the regular left fielder with Burrell on the DL. Aug. 6 - 8:03 am et
