Chase Utley has a history of fibbing about injuries. The Phillies brass has a history of downplaying injuries. That's a combustible combination. Utley has patellar tendonitis in his right knee and got a cortisone injection in it this past weekend. Utley, who has been limited to batting practice only, has not felt/seen any improvement yet and that is becoming extremely worrisome. Might there be a deeper problem? What we do know is that Utley is a tough ass and has played through pain before, so the fact that he's still sidelined by this is puzzling and troublesome.
