Phillies Release Statement On Chase Utley Who Is Leaving Clearwater

Mar 19, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

The Phillies have released a statement on Chase Utley's rehab saying he's reached a plateau and is leaving Clearwater to see a specialist.

The Phillies released a statement on Chase Utley’s knee this morning, noting that he’s hit a “plateau” in his rehab and is leaving Clearwater to see a specialist.

From Ruben Amaro Jr:

“Chase’s rehab process has come to a bit of a plateau.  He has made some strides but not enough to take the field.  He is headed out of town for a few days to be evaluated by a specialist that has helped athletes overcome his issue.  We anticipate that this trip will allow him to build on what he has already done with Scott Sheridan in order to get over the hump.  He wants more than anything to be on the field with his teammates and we believe that this is a step in that direction.”

The level of concern across the Delaware Valley continues to rise.
