Utley said his ankle has improved since he arrived at camp last month, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "I'm making a little progress," Utley said. "Obviously, I wish it was a little quicker, but I'm trying to be smart about it. It seems like it's making some progressions every few days. As long as it continues to do that, I'd like to get out there as soon as possible."
Manager Ryne Sandberg said Biddle (elbow) has stood out early on in camp, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. "[He's] really doing a good job," Sandberg said. "Every time he pitches and does sides, he has really good command. He's showing his pitches and seems to be really in control."
Herrera has made an impression thus far in camp, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. "He's been the talk of camp," said Mike Ondo, the Phillies' director of pro scouting. "He's shown a lot of bat speed and a willingness to learn - so far, so good."
