Utley plans to swing again Sunday. He wants a few days of batting practice before considering a minor-league rehab assignment. His pace is deliberate because the ailment can regress if pushed too fast.
"I think that would be the smartest thing to do," Utley said.
Ben Revere had three more hits on Saturday, raising his season batting average to .272. He is hitting .323 (41 for 127) since the beginning of May. During his six-game hitting streak, Revere's batting average has improved by 29 points.
"Ben has been playing better," manager Charlie Manuel said. "The other day was the best I've seen him play. It's good."
Carlos Ruiz (strained right hamstring) caught five innings for triple-A Lehigh Valley in his first minor-league rehab game. He went 0 for 2.
Ruiz will play for the IronPigs again Sunday, rest Monday, and head to double-A Reading for two games during the week. He hopes to be activated for Friday's series opener with the New York Mets.
Jimmy Rollins was removed in the fifth inning with the score lopsided. Rollins did not play Friday because of pain in his right hip and foot. "It's not something where I expect to go out there tomorrow and, oh, not around," Rollins said. "It's not going to hinder the way I play, necessarily, but if there's something I really have to go after, it could come into play." . . . The Phillies released shortstop Tyler Greene. Greene was an 11th-round pick in 2011 and signed for $375,000 (the equivalent of third-round money). His career amounted to 105 minor-league games.
