"His foot kind of gets tight during the game," manager Charlie Manuel said. "He'll be real loose, he'll be feeling real good, and as he stays on it, it tightens up. He gets sore, he gets tight."
Manuel said he hasn't noticed the foot affecting Utley in the batters' box.
"I do notice it sometimes when I watch him run the bases or he has to really run hard," Manuel said. "I notice it at times."
"You guys seem like you are in a hurry for us to freakin do something with our pitching," he said. "Hey, we won a World Series with four of those starters. That was our rotation. And the other guy, in spring training, he pitched very good."
