ST. LOUIS -- Chase Utley will play again Monday night for single-A Clearwater, going on back-to-back days for the second time in official rehab games.
He has 28 at-bats in his rehab (including extended spring training games). But Ruben Amaro Jr. dispelled any notions that Utley could be back with the Phillies when Wednesday's homestand begins.
"Let's put it this way: He's not coming to Philadelphia in the middle of the week," Amaro said. "He needs at-bats."
A clarification is needed: Utley did not play nine innings Sunday as the official boxscore indicated. He played just seven. So he has yet to play nine full innings in the field, something that could happen tonight.
