Phillies | Chase Utley to go on DL

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley (oblique) has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 oblique strain and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Although they are terming it a mild oblique injury, we've seen mild injury concerns keep Utley out for much longer than the minimum timetable before. Treat this situation similarly and expect him to be out for longer than 15 days, especially since clubs tend to be extra cautious with oblique ailments. Freddy Galvis, who will likely start at the keystone, will have value in deep mixed leagues until Utley comes back. Cesar Hernandez or Darin Ruf could be recalled from the minors for depth.
