After releasing a statement earlier Monday saying that Chase Utley's rehab had hit a plateau and that Utley will be leaving Clearwater to see a specialist, Ruben Amaro Jr. told reporters that it's also unlikely that Utley would start opening day. Instead, shortstop prospect Freddy Galvis will look to transition to 2B and could be your opening day starter in place of Chase.

Ruben says opening day unlikely for Utley. Condition in both knees. Won't say where utley went. Galvis the guy at second.

Last year it was Utley's right knee. This time it's both, and Ruben says left is worse of the two.
