The Phillies will play their 76th game of the season tonight. They seem likely to play their final 86 after that with Chase Utley.

The convalescing Phillies second baseman will take his rehab to Allentown, Pa., where he'll play for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs tonight in their International League encounter with the Rochester Red Wings.

If Utley feels comfortable and the Phillies are content, he could make his 2012 Phillies debut Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park against the Pirates.
