Chase Utley Flies Back To Philly For Tests

Chase Utley has been flown back to Philadelphia for a check on his injured thumb and is expected to have his splint removed if all goes well. Ryan Lawrence looks ahead a bit and figures that he could be back by the end of August.

If the splint is removed Friday and he’s cleared to hit in, say, another week after building strength in his right hand, it’s not a stretch to think he could do a rehab assignment sometime between the 14th and 19th and could be back in the lineup the weekend of August 20, when they host Washington, is it?
