Chase Utley Update: Second Baseman To Play Consecutive Days In Field

Chase Utley might not be far away from making his season debut for the Philadelphia Phillies. On Saturday he will play second base on back-to-back days for the first time this season.

Utley, who is about to play his ninth game on his rehab assignment, has not yet found his stroke at the plate. In 29 at-bats, he has just five hits. However, he stole a base in his last game, showing that he is feeling more comfortable on his knee.

The Phillies have been playing Michael Martinez at second base.
