No timetable yet for Chase Utley’s return

6 Comments

General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. updated Chase Utley’s status yesterday, although there really wasn’t a whole lot to update.

Amaro told Todd Zolecki of MLB.com that Utley “is moving forward” with his rehab from chronic knee problems and “his strength seems to be improving.”

However, there’s still no timetable for Utley’s return and so far there isn’t even any talk of him seeing game action at extended spring training.

Utley and the Phillies haven’t exactly been forthcoming about his status throughout all this, but his being able to simply workout again without significant discomfort is a positive development at the very least.
