Utley walked into his news conference with an exaggerated limp, but said he hoped to be ready for the start of the season April 5. "I'm feeling good," said Utley, whose right hip was operated Nov. 24. "I don't see any reason why I won't be ready for the start of the season barring any setbacks." His next evaluation is scheduled to take place in about a month. "I'm young and I think it was the best course of action," he said. "It's a problem that I've probably had for a long time. I don't play soft and I think it worked out pretty well."

News: Phillies 2B Chase Utley says his rehab from hip surgery is on schedule, and the Phillies second baseman expects to be ready by opening day. Utley, who underwent right hip surgery Nov. 24, said Saturday he is just weeks away from starting to swing a bat. "In two to three weeks - that would be nice," Utley said. "If everything goes as planned, that's what we want to do. And right now, we're on schedule." The three-time All-Star stayed in Philadelphia during the offseason and turned the ballpark into his office. Utley works out with the Phillies training staff five days a week and hopes to be ready when the season starts April 5 against the Atlanta Braves. "It's about listening to my body. Right now, we are listening and it's responding well," Utley said. "If that continues to happen, then I don't see why I won't be ready for opening day."
