Utley ‘Felt Really Good’ Running

May 11, 2011, 2:35 AM EDT

Chase Utley played in his first official rehab game on Tuesday night, batting third as the designated hitter for the Clearwater Threshers. Utley went 1-4 with a single in his final at bat of the day. Chase said he felt “really good” running the bases, but added that he did feel a bit of discomfort in the knee while at the plate at times.

A reporter for the Trentonian covered the Single-A game.

“A few at-bats I felt comfortable, a few I haven’t,” Utley said after the game. “But that’s probably standard at this point.”

Utley making progress is fantastic to hear because the Phillies offense could absolutely use his bat these days.
