|Chase Utley to begin rehab assignment|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(6/19/13) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday at Double-A Reading, MLB.com reports.
It's unclear how many games Utley will play at Reading, but a best-case scenario could see him returning to the Phillies by the weekend. Utley was hitting .272/.339/.475 in 158 at-bats before he went down with a strained oblique May 20.

(6/17/13) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley might begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
Utley took batting practice this past weekend, and the team will likely decide the next step before Monday's game with the Nationals. Utley has been out with an oblique strain since late May. He's hitting .272/.339/.475 in 158 at-bats.

(6/16/13) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley (ribs) took part in batting practice Friday and Saturday for the first time since he was injured on a batting-practice swing last month.
Utley told the Philadelphia Inquirer he is unsure when he'll begin a minor-league rehab assignment. He's not expected to rejoin the Phillies until next weekend at the earliest.
|No timetable for Chase Utley's return|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/12/13) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley still doesn't have a timetable for his return from the disabled list, MLB.com reports. He has been swinging a bat this week but has yet to have a rehab assignment scheduled.
Utley had targeted the middle of June for his return, which is this weekend, and it's still possible he could be back early next week after a few rehab game.
"I think it’s still realistic," Utley told MLB.com Wednesday. "Everything has gone well so far. Tomorrow I’m going to probably do the same, maybe pick up the intensity a little bit and go from there. But I don’t have an actual date (in mind to return). … The guys who I’ve talked to, who have had this in the past, they said once you start swinging, a few said it was sore and they had to back off for a few days. So far I haven’t had to do that."
|Chase Utley begins work in batting cage|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/9/13) Phillies third base coach Ryne Sandberg put second baseman Chase Utley (ribs) through a rigorous infield workout Sunday, according to CSN Philadelphia. Utley also started swinging in the batting cage Sunday.
The veteran second baseman remains on track for a mid-June return.
|Chase Utley played, essentially, two half seasons in 2011 and 2012. He showed up late to both, gave glimpses of his past greatness, but didn't exactly overwhelm enough for Fantasy owners to flock in droves. Coming into 2013, however, Utley looks healthy and ready to return to form. While his batting average has been in a tailspin since 2007, the flashes we've seen of him the last two seasons -- especially the 2012 version -- suggest that he still has some pop in his bat. And his creaky knees haven't sapped him of his speed. Extrapolate last year over a full season, and Utley has 20-20 numbers, along with about 30 doubles. He's capable of getting the average back up to .290, and there's reason to expect his power and speed numbers to improve as he starts 2013 healthy and as a member of the Phillies, not doing base-running exercises at the spring training complex. He will be off the board in the early-to-middle rounds of most drafts. (Updated 12/7/12)|
