    Chase Utley Injured Last Night

    This could be a huge loss for the Phillies and fortunate timing for the Reds if he has to miss time.

    http://www.philly.com/inquirer/sport...e_to_Reds.html

    CINCINNATI - The Phillies' clubhouse was quiet, as it typically is after any loss, Monday's 7-3 defeat to the Cincinnati Reds included. But this was a different kind of silence.

    Everyone was thinking it. Shane Victorino was the first to say it.

    "Hopefully, Chase is not seriously, seriously hurt," Victorino said. "For him to leave a game, he's the last guy who is going to take himself out of a game."

    And that's exactly what happened in the ninth inning. Instead of Chase Utley leading off, Juan Castro pinch-hit. After the game, the team disclosed that Utley had injured his right thumb on a headfirst slide in the fourth inning as he tried unsuccessfully to stretch a single into a double.

    The second baseman will have an MRI exam on his hand Tuesday in Cincinnati, according to Scott Proefrock, the Phillies' assistant general manager. That will determine the severity of the injury.

    But Utley, who has played through his share of injuries, may have provided enough context as to how serious this injury could be when he did not bat in the ninth.

    This could be a BIG break for the Reds. The Phils would have to restructure their lineup a bit too, what with Utley hitting 3rd.

    I assume he's going to see Kremchek. I think Doc's diagnosis should include "two days rest" no matter what the MRI says...

    Haha, we can only hope.

    This is similar to the injury that put Jason Heyward on the DL.

    Huge loss for the Phillies. Utley is a fantastic ballplayer and, by all accounts I've ever read, a class-act. Hate to see him sidelined, even if it is against the Reds.

    I'd like to see the Reds miss him the rest of the series and the whole next series.

    Utley should be put on the 15 day DL ASAP.

    From Jerry Crasnick:

    Double whammy for the Phillies: Team is expected to place both Chase Utley and Placido Polanco on the DL later Tuesday.

    http://twitter.com/jcrasnick

    If true, both of them will still be out of the lineup when the Reds play in Philly next week. Hopefully the Reds can take advantage and win the season series against the Phillies.

    The injuries may also help Phillips and Rolen make the all star team. If I remember correctly, both Phillies were leading in vote totals at their positions.

    You never want to root for this thing or see guys get hurt...but at the same time, you really hope the Reds can capitalize on Philly's loss.

    Dear Chase, I feel like I can call you Chase because you and me are so much alike. I would love to meet you some day. It would be great to have a catch. I know I canít throw as fast as you, but I think you would be impressed with my speed. I love your hair. You run fast. Do you have a good relationship with your father? Me neither. These are all things we can talk about and more. I know you have not been getting my letters because I know you would write back if you did, and I hope you write back this time and we get to be good friends. I am sure our relationship would be a real home run.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
