Phillies' Chase Utley able to workout on Tuesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley was able to work out on Tuesday, according to MLB.com.
Utley did not participate in workouts on Monday due to a sore ankle. He's expected to miss a few spring games due to the injury, but the fact that he was able to put in work on Tuesday should be seen as an encouraging sign.
The 36-year-old hit .270/.339/.407 over 589 at-bats last season.
Phillies' Chase Utley misses Monday workout
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley didn't work out Monday as he continues to recover from an ankle issue, MLB.com reports.
Utley won't play in the spring opener and said Monday that he'll miss this week's slate of games entirely, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. The second baseman that while his ankle has improved in the last week, it's still pretty swollen and he has yet to begin running.
Utley suffered the ankle injury in January after stepping on a baseball.
"I'm making a little progress," Utley said, per MLB.com. "Obviously, I wish it was a little quicker, but I'm trying to be smart about it. It seems like it's making some progressions every few days. I'd like to get out there as soon as possible.
"There's no sense in overdoing it and screwing something else up, especially when we have a month until the season starts."
Phillies to hold Chase Utley out of spring training opener
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Citing his ankle issue and need to be ready, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said second baseman Chase Utley will not play in Tuesday's spring training opener, reports The News Journal.
Utley injured his ankle in January and is not 100 percent recovered, but Sandberg said Utley will play in spring training games down the road.
Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has no plans to request trade
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has become a cornerstone of the organization. Because of that, the 36-year-old said he has no plans to ask for a trade to a better team or a playoff team, according to MLB.com.
"I really enjoy playing with this organization," he said. "They've done a lot for me, personally, and put together some pretty good teams over the years. So I have a lot of respect for the people making decisions. They've always put together a great bunch of guys. We made it work out. We've had some great opportunities over the years and I respect that."
Utley hit .270 with 11 home runs and 78 RBI in 2014 and would only think about a trade if the team approached him about it.
"For as much respect as I have for the organization, if they ever came to me and asked me, I would have to listen," Utley said. "But I don't think much will change."
Phillies' Utley working to get back to 100 percent after injuring ankle
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley said he sprained his right ankle in January after stepping on a baseball, per The News Journal. He said the ankle has improved a lot, but he is not at the point in his recovery of where he wants to be.
Utley added he plans to take it slow at the start of spring training, but said his knees feel fine. Utley has missed significant time in the past due to knee injuries.
|2014 summary: The good news for Chase Utley was that, for the first time since 2009, he avoided the disabled list. Appearing in 155 games helped Utley to fill out his counting stats, and his 78 RBI were a five-year high, but a lack of home run power kept him mired among the second-tier second basemen. The 12-year Phillies veteran did hit 36 doubles and six triples, but with just 11 homers, he ranked eighth at his position in points leagues and 10th in Rotisserie leagues.|
Playing time status: Utley hadn't played as many as 135 games in any of the previous four seasons, so even though he was healthy for all of 2014, he's not the safest bet to turn in a full season's worth of games.
2015 outlook: Because Utley can still churn out doubles, hit for a decent average and pitch in with 10 or more steals, he will continue to have value in standard mixed leagues. His days as an elite at second base are well in the past, but he is still worth a pick in the middle rounds.
