CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Chase Utley is leaving Phillies camp to see a specialist about his injured right knee. The five-time All-Star second baseman hasn't played in a game this spring because of a chronic knee condition that forced him to miss all of last spring and the first 46 games of the regular season. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. says "this is a step in that direction." The Phillies already are without Ryan Howard. The former MVP is recovering from surgery on his left Achilles and is unlikely to return before June.
