CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Phillies never like to admit that they're concerned about anything.

So when general manager Ruben Amaro said Saturday there was "concern" about Chase Utley's right knee, take it seriously. When Utley admitted a few minutes later that "there's always concern," take it even more seriously.

Utley had a cortisone shot in his knee on Friday, and if all goes well the cortisone will relieve the pain he has been feeling all spring, and by early next week he'll be able to step up his activity to include running and playing defense. Utley has been limited so far to batting practice and throwing, and he did both again on Saturday.

"We'll probably know by the end of the weekend if [the shot] helped," Amaro said.

And if it didn't?

Amaro won't say. Utley won't speculate.

That's not a surprise. You wouldn't expect them to.

It may not be an issue. The cortisone shot could do the trick.

But it's not good that this has gone on even this long.

"It hasn't gone as well as I'd have liked," Utley said. "At this point, it hasn't gotten a whole lot better."

For now, the Phillies are still referring to Utley's condition as patellar tendinitis.

But he's concerned. The Phillies are concerned.

And that tells you all you need to know.

Interesting that the fan of a team that was the fastest to 10,000 losses would call any other team and their fans pathetic losers. We have more world championships than you have playoff appearances. Congrats on 09.
