Utley & Feliz Surgery Update

Chase Utley had surgery on his hip on Monday and according to the Phillies, the outcome was as expected.  He will still have a 4-6 month recovery time.  The procedure was done to trim the labrum and a bony lesion in his right hip and was described as an “arthroscopic debridement .”  GM Ruben Amaro said, “Our early reports are that it was very successful surgery.”  I imagine Utley will not be turning cartwheels anytime soon, but it is possible, although unlikely, that he would be ready to play on Opening Day.  The Phillies have been rumored to be looking for a player to stand in for Utley until he is ready, but I would Bionic.jpgimagine with Eric Bruntlett as a back-up option, they may not put this high on their priority list.

Pedro Feliz had surgery on his back last week and that procedure was also said to have gone very well.  Feliz will complete a rehab program at home which is said to take about 8-12 weeks.  He should be back for Spring Training.  In the meantime, we are all waiting for Bionic Man technology to emerge and get these athletes in top shape right now!  Combine that with the salaries these players earn and it will give a whole new meaning to “The Six Million Dollar Man.”
