The Philadelphia Phillies have placed starting 2B Chase Utley, starting RF Dominic Brown, shortstop Brian Bocock and righty reliever Brian Schlitter on the 15-day disabled list to start the 2011 season. Utley has right knee tendinitis which will keep him out indefinitely. Wilson Valdez will replace Utley at 2B until he’s ready to return to action. The Phillies really need Utley if the offense is to click on all cylinders in 2011. Dominic Brown has a fractured left hand, so he’s also going to miss a while. Ben Francisco and Ross Gload are going to share time in RF until Brown is ready to return to action. Bocock (left wrist fracture) and Schlitter (right forearm strain) will likely be sent to the minors when they get healthy.
