Chase Utley (knees) is expected to start Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against the Astros.

Utley hasn't appeared in a spring training game since 2010 due to his chronically injured knees, so it's a sign that he remains on track to be ready for Opening Day. The 34-year-old will be a risk in fantasy leagues going into the season, but has a chance to be undervalued at a thin second base position.
