“Chase Utley, you are The Man!” — Harry Kalas
Phillies fans have been known to reiterate the accurate words of the late, great Harry Kalas when Utley comes through with a big hit or a great defensive play.
Now, after missing the first 46 games of the 2011 season, fans will have their chance to cheer Utley in person again.
Utley returned to Philadelphia on Sunday, and he is expected to be activated before Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.
The Phillies are scheduled to face Bronson Arroyo. In his career, Utley is 4-9 with a homer and a pair of RBI against the Reds’ righty.
The Phillies offense, what has been in a near season-long funk, need the type of energy Utley brings each day.
