No Surgery, Chase Utley’s Confident About Playing This YearBREAKING NEWS, Infielders, News, Phillies Sunday, March 25th, 2012
“I was in Phoenix meeting with a physical therapist by the name of Brett Fischer for about four or five days, just to get some better ideas on how I can continue to move forward,” Utley said. “I have a better idea now on how my body is supposed to move compared to how it’s moving at this time, and I think we have something pretty good for the future.
“I will take this process fairly slow, because I think it’s important to get everything around my knees working correctly. And I think it’s going to take a little bit of time.”
Basically Utley feels he can solve the problems with his left knee by doing the same things to it that he did a year ago to the right knee.
“My right knee last year was the knee that bothered me,” he said. “And my left knee felt pretty good. This year, it’s the complete opposite. My right knee feels very good, which is in my mind, a positive. But now my left knee is a little upset. So we made some changes last year to my right knee. It worked because it feels strong. It feels good. Now I have to make similar changes to my left knee. Again, it’ll take a little time to see how it goes.”
