Utley Heading to Extended Spring Training
Chase Utley will head to Clearwater, FL to start working out in extended spring training. Its somewhat encouraging news but there is still no timetable on when he could be ready to return.
Recently Utley took 25 grounders and he's also shagged flies during batting practice.
"Every day, it seems like it's getting a little bit better," Utley told the Philadelphia Inquire last week. "The last couple of days I've pushed it and increased the intensity a little bit and they have responded well, so that's a good sign in my eyes."
While in Clearwater Utley will have to prove capable of effectively fielding his position before the Phillies summon him to the big leagues and that could take some time.
