The World Champion Phillies (wow, it's great to write that!) have barely recovered from their World Series parade when they were dealt a blow Thursday.
All-Star second baseman Chase Utley will have surgery on an injured hip and will be unable to participate in baseball activities for 3 to 4 months. Spring training starts in 3 months, on Feb. 14, and Utley may not be fully recovered until May.
Third baseman Pedro Feliz will have surgery on his back and will go through an 8-to-12 week rehabilitation.
