Utley’s hip surgery

No new news on Utley’s hip surgery.

Progressing fairly quickly since Thursday’s announcement that the second baseman would need right hip surgery — that could potentially keep him sidelined until June — the prognosis was unclear, and promised to be better defined today. No such luck, as of yet.

Utley underwent the procedure Monday morning, and reports today were that it was successful, whatever that means.

The injury, which is reported as happening as early as last offseason and flaring up during the final stretch of this season, may help explain Utley’s slippery decline after the All-Star break. Or maybe it does not, as new general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. claims.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old (Dec. 17) has to have hip surgery. Doesn’t that only happen after age 60? And he played — every game, every play — all season, without so much as a whine.

I’d say he’s the man. Right, Kalas?
