Chase Utley has yet to play in a Spring Training game. Concerned? Not me. Manuel and Amaro's plan is to ease him into action in hopes that less wear and tear on his knee in meaningless March games leads to better health and more production in games that actually count in August and September. When healthy, Utley is a premiere second baseman. He plays excellent defense, has great base running instincts, and can hit for power. He's going to need a day off every 2 weeks, but we'll see if Fuqua plays him that way. I'm expecting a bounce back season for Chase and was tempted to project his 2012 stats even higher.
Chase Utley/2B - 139 G, .281/.846, 86 R, 25 DBL, 22 HR, 83 RBI, 12 SB.
