At 10 a.m., Ruben Amaro Jr. received a contract extension to remain the Phillies general manager through 2015.
Before 11 a.m., he had issued an update on second baseman Chase Utley's ailing right knee.
We learned a lot more about Amaro's past than Utley's future.
"We have done some consultations with some doctors and right now after consulting with (team physician) Dr. Ciccotti as well, we're comfortable with what we're doing here right now," Amaro said. "He's actually been able to do some more exercises that he had not been doing before. He showed some progression in some of the exercises. I don't think he's taking ground balls quite yet, but some of the work he is doing with (trainer) Scott Sheridan on his rehab, he's done some more things."
