Aaron Gleeman Dec 19, 2012, 10:10 AM EST 9 Comments AP Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jrgave an update on Chase Utley‘s health status yesterday, saying he’s “cautiously optimistic” the second baseman will be a full-time player in 2013 after missing much of 2012 with chronic knee problems. “He’s done very well this offseason,” Amaro said, via Corey Seidman of CSNPhilly.com“He’s taking groundballs pretty much every other dayHe didn’t take a whole lot of time offI think we’ve all learned, including Chase, that it probably behooves him to continue to work and be able to do things to keep his joints going, keep his knees goingHe’s actually done very well.” Utley missed the first 76 games, but then played 83 of the final 86 games while hitting .256 with 11 homers and a .793 OPS. Amaro admitted that the Phillies plan to “monitor him” during spring training, adding: “We’re going to have a discussion prior to spring training about how he’s going to be utilized going into the spring.” Tags: Chase Utley, Philadelphia Phillies Skip to Comments (9) Tweet Email « Newer Marlins “checking out Miguel Tejada in winter ball”Older » Former No1 pick Matt Bush will be in prison until 2016 window._taboola = window._taboola || []; _taboola.push({mode:'thumbs-1r', container:'taboola-below-main-column-mix', placement:'below-main-column', target_type:'mix'}); window._taboola = window._taboola || []; _taboola.push({mode:'hybrid-text-links-2c', container:'taboola-text-2-columns-mix', placement:'text-2-columns', target_type:'mix'}); More HardballTalk Back to Homepage Latest Posts Latest Posts RSS Feed Dodgers sign Mike Adams to minor league contract Drew Silva Mar 1, 2015, 11:33 AM EST 4 Comments Getty Images From the official Twitter account of the Los Angeles Dodgers … Tweet Email Read more » Minnie Minoso has died at age 92 Drew Silva Mar 1, 2015, 10:33 AM EST 11 Comments Minoso, a native of Cuba, batted .298/.389/.459 with 1,963 hits, 186 home runs, and 1,023 RBI in parts of 17 major league seasons split between the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox, StLouis Cardinals, and Washington Senators.
