Chase Utley to go to Florida for extended spring training

10 Comments

There is still no timetable for his return, but there is progress of sorts on the Chase Utley rehab front: he’s heading to Clearwater for extended spring training. Hitting first, but then eventually some fielding.

The fielding is the problem, as his knee problems hurt his lateral movement.  So I suppose it’s not yet time to get excited.  But it’s not nothing, and after so much nothing, that’s something.

Um, I think. I’m confused too. Sorry.
