Phillies | Chase Utley taking grounders

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley (knee), who has had knee issues each of the past two offseasons, is cautiously optimistic he can return to full-time duty in 2013. "He's taking ground balls pretty much every other day," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "He didn't take a whole lot of time off. One of the things I think we've all learned, including Chase, that it probably behooved him to continue to work and do things to be able to keep his joints going, keep his knees going. He's actually done very well."
