Phillies' Utley out for two months after surgery

The Miami Herald—July 1, 2010

Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb.
He is expected to be sidelined for approximately eight weeks.

The operation was performed by Dr. Andrew Weiland at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

Utley is expected to have the thumb in a splint for five weeks and, once it is removed, will then be able to begin range of motion exercises.

The eight-week estimate also includes a rehabilitation stint in the minor leagues.
