There he is. Chase Utley. Taking grounders on the day pitchers and catchers were scheduled to report to Phillies camp down in Clearwater, Florida.
That photo comes courtesy of the telephonic equipment used by NBC 10's John Clark.
Now, I don't know about you, but to my heavily-trained Internet eye, Chase's knees look fantastic in the extremely low resolution photos popping up on Twitter's photo sharing services.
Chase Utley taking grounders. Didn't do this last spring. Good sign twitter.com/johnclarknbc10…

To add some actual reporting to back up our never-wrong eye impressions, Matt Gelb gives us the details:
Seen Chase Utley for
less than 10 minutes and he is already more active than all of last
spring. Lots of movement as he takes grounders.
