Will Chase return next week? (AP)
Charlie Manuel said before Thursday’s series finale against the Rockies that Chase Utley could be back next week if all continues to go well.
Manuel says it’s all about feeling comfortable in the field for Utley, who is DH-ing and batting third for Clearwater again tonight. He played eight innings in the field on Wednesday and hit a home run...
Class A Lakewood outfielder Kyrell Hudson hasn’t had the type of season that many had expected after he became an All-Star last season with the short-season Williamsport Crosscutters. Thus far in 2012, the 21-year-old has posted a .202/.262/.271 line over 56 games.
It’s not unusual for Hudson to have a rough time at the plate. The Phillies’ 2009 third round draft pick posted...

There was more than one situation last night when the Phillies could have used Chase Utley's bat at the plate. Utley, who is by far the closest injured Phillie...

Stutes may need surgery.
Phillies GM Ruben Amaro spoke to the media today and gave a bevy of injury updates. Some were good, others were not.
-Roy Halladay is symptom-free during his throwing program, which is a huge positive. Seems like the 6-8 week timetable is still very much in play.
-Michael Stutes could have exploratory elbow surgery, Amaro said. His nagging...

Joe Blanton of the Philadelphia Phillies is a solid option after the number ones. How does that match-up with the Brew Crew? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my recent coverage linked below.

Joe Blanton went seven innings tonight and exited the game in a five to five tie. Jonathan Papelbon allowed the go-ahead run in the 9th for Colorado, but the Phillies' offense answered in the bottom-half.
Hunter Pence tied the game with two outs, doubling on a line drive...
Charlie Manuel and his Phillies insist they're still in the running for another playoff appearance. The problem is that they're not showing it on the field and need to convince their GM that he should buy rather than sell.
During his last four starts, Cole Hamels often looked like an agitated pitcher who seemed a little bit out of sorts. So in the second inning on Tuesday night -- after the left-hander walked opposing pitcher Josh Outman with one out -- there was a sense that it was happening again. At that point, Hamels retreated from the mound and visibly took a deep breath. "You learn...
The Phillies won the second game of their series with the Rockies, not by a nose or even by the hair of their chins; they won by a toe. It was Todd Helton’s toe, to be exact.
In the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs, the bases loaded and a tie game, Placido Polanco stepped to the plate. He hit a bouncing grounder to short that looked like it might end the game. It did end the game...
