Utley could play first game Friday

Chase Utley could play his first game of the spring on Friday, manager Ryne Sandberg said. The veteran second baseman has yet to play in Grapefruit League play as he works his way back from a January right-ankle sprain.

Chase Utley could play his first game of the spring on Friday, manager Ryne Sandberg said.

The veteran second baseman has yet to play in Grapefruit League play as he works his way back from a January right-ankle sprain.

"There's a chance for him to possibly be in there [Friday] in a DH-type of a role," Sandberg said.
