We figured this would happen, but now it’s official: Chase Utley is in tonight’s lineup, batting third and playing his usual second base. And Charlie Manuel announced the plan for him going forward. From CSNPhilly.com:
Charlie Manuel said Utley will play two games, then receive a day off, at least until the All-Star break. Because Utley played Tuesday for the IronPigs, he won’t play Thursday against Pittsburgh.
Makes sense to go slow. Welcome back, Chase Utley.
