Report: Chase Utley could return Wednesday
Phillies second baseman Chase Utley could play one more minor-league game before returning to the team in time for Wednesday's game against the Pirates. He will play for the team's Triple-A team on Tuesday.
Sunday the team announced that Utley would play Tuesday at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. That's in line with the report by CSNPhilly.com's Jim Salisbury that Utley would play Tuesday for the Iron Pigs before joining the team for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.
Utley has spent the entire season on the disabled list with sore left knee.
Saturday was the first time he played second base in back-to-back games in his nine-game stint with Clearwater, playing eight innings. In those nine games, he hit .156/.263/.250 in 32 at-bats. A home run on Wednesday was the lone extra-base hit among his five hits. He was 1-for-3 on Saturday.
