Phillies | Wilson Valdez the backup option at second base

Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said SS Wilson Valdez will be the team's starter at second base if 2B Chase Utley (knee) is not ready for the start of the season, according to ESPN.com's Jayson Stark. The team could look outside the organization if Utley is forced to miss the majority of the season. Free-agent 2B David Eckstein (Padres) could be an option.
