PHILADELPHIA —

Chase Utley is in Philadelphia. He is not, however, on the Phillies' roster.

The five-time All-Star second baseman returned to the team Sunday and appears close to being activated off the disabled list. Utley hasn't played this season because of tendinitis in his right knee.

He played in his fourth straight rehab game Saturday night at Single-A Clearwater. He hit .281 with one homer in nine games.

Utley declined comment before Sunday's game against Texas. The Phillies say Utley will meet with head trainer Scott Sheridan and team doctor Michael Ciccotti before deciding the next course of action.

Utley has said after rehab games that he was feeling great. He could be activated in time for Monday's game against Cincinnati.
