Source: Utley to have thumb surgery

By Jayson Stark

Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley will need surgery on his sprained right thumb and is expected to miss 5 to 6 weeks, according to a source.

He was scheduled to have surgery on Thursday in New York City with hand specialist Dr. Andrew Weiland, the source said.

Utley hurt his thumb while sliding into second base Monday night while trying to stretch a leadoff single into a double against Cincinnati. He's hitting .277 with 11 homers and 37 RBIs and is the leading vote-getter at second base in National League ALl-Star voting.

I just saw where a headline on ESPN.com says Utley will be out 8 weeks.

Wow!! Big blow to them. The loss of Polanco and Utley will make it very difficult for Philly to get out of its slump......we need to take full advantage of it. Would be so sweet to sweep them again next week.

From what I keep seeing, it says he's out AT LEAST 8 weeks. Contrary to the how much that slobbering assface John Kruk says Utley could be back in 4 weeks and rescue the Phillies, it ain't gonna happen.

Monday night is against Halladay with Lowe going for us. Tough matchup already, plus you never know which Lowe will show up or how long until he implodes. They showed tonight they could hang with one of the best starters in the NL, so who knows. I just hope they rip up Moyer on Thursday after that 2 hit embarrassment back in April.
