More good news on Utley Watch. According to Jim Salisbury’s sources, the second baseman is finished with his assignment in Clearwater, and he could be back in the big club’s lineup by Wednesday.

The report adds Utley should play one final minor league game, likely for Triple A Lehigh Valley, before he rejoins the team.

Salisbury seems to have the scoop on this one, so let’s hope he’s right. The Phillies will take any help they can get, as early as they can get it at this point.
