Chase Utley played in a minor league game on Saturday. He went 2-4, and played 4 innings at second base. Utley struck out twice but he also had a base hit and a ground rule double. This was the first game action the Phils’ second baseman has seen since Game 5 of the World Series.
Chase should be able to take the field with the big league club early next week, and it looks like he will be ready for the season opener or April 5th.
It appears safe to draft Utley as the top second baseman on draft day.
