Chase Utley was 0-for-3 in this second rehab start for Clearwater in a 6-0 loss to Lakeland Sunday afternoon.

He grounded into a doubleplay in the first inning, grounded out in the third and flew out in the fifth before leaving the game — as scheduled — after seven innings.

He also committed a fielding error in the first inning. 

The Phillies are hoping that Utley will play in one, or perhaps both games, of a scheduled doubleheader Monday and then will decide whether to bring him back to the big leagues.
