Oblique strain sends Phillies' Utley to DL

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed second baseman Chase Utley on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

Utley is expected to miss between 2-to-4 weeks with what the team is calling a "mild grade 1" strain.

The club selected the contract of utility man Michael Martinez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to replace Utley.

Utley is batting .272 with seven homers and 25 RBI through 44 games this season.
