Chase Utley is back in Philadelphia

He's baaaaaack! According to the Phillies beat writers, after an entire offseason of rehab and a few weeks of games in Clearwater, Chase Utley has returned to the Phillies. Utley isn't in the lineup today and won't be used until tomorrow, where you can expect him somewhere near the top of the lineup, if not in his usual #3 spot.

Utley's return is a welcome sight for a lineup that continues to struggle to score. With Domonic Brown already here, Utley almost here and Jose Contreras expected back soon, things are finally starting to come together for the Phillies. That they've still managed to have the best record in the NL without all of these pieces is truly remarkable.
