According to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki, Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is currently at Citizens Bank Park.

Zolecki reports that Utley is on the field playing catch with infielder Mike Fontenot. Zolecki also notes that Utley is working out here today, tomorrow he will go play for Triple-A Lehigh Valley and will be back in Philly on Wednesday most likely after being activated.

Utley was moved up from Clearwater over the weekend and it was noted that he would continue his workouts and rehab with the IronPigs. If all is well for Utley, he could be in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates. If he does return Wednesday, Utley would be facing Pirate's righty A.J. Burnett.

Schneider to DL

The Phillies also placed catcher Brian Schneider on the DL this afternoon with a high ankle sprain. Schneider injured his ankle after colliding with Sean Rodriguez. Taking Schneider's place on the roster will be Erik Kratz, who has been up with the team so many times this year but has yet to make a start.
