The Philadelphia Phillies place Chase Utley on the DL

The Phillies have placed All-Star 2B Chase Utley on the 15-day disabled list with a broken hand.  He will likely miss 4-6 weeks and this will really hurt the Phillies offense as Utley was having his best season ever.  Utley has played in 100 games this season and he is 134 for 399 (.336 avg, .995 OPS) with 79 runs scored, 17 homers, 82 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.  Abraham Nunez will likely take over as the starting secondbaseman of the Phillies until Utley is ready to return.  Nunez has played in 81 games this season and he is 46 for 180 (.256 avg, .627 OPS) with 19 runs scored and 13 RBIs.
