Chase Utley looking to bounce back from a disappointing season at the plate.

This season, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said Sunday that Utley will be eased into game action during spring training.

Back in October, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro admitted that the patella tendinitis in Utley's right knee probably will never go away and he's not sure Utley will ever again reach his previously-elite production.

If that's the case, the Phillies will need to find offense in other area's and think about moving Utley down in the line-up.
