Phillies’ Chase Utley to Undergo Surgery on Injured Right Thumb

July 1 (Bloomberg) -- Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is scheduled to have surgery on his right thumb today, three days after injuring it while trying to stretch a single into a double.

Utley, who leads all National League second basemen in voting for the July 13 All-Star Game, will undergo the procedure at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, the Phillies said in a news release.

The team didn’t say how long Utley, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 29 with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament of the thumb, would be out of action. He could miss five to six weeks, according to MLB Network.

Utley, 31, is batting .277 with 11 home runs, 37 runs batted in and 49 runs scored this season.
