Phillies' Chase Utley misses Monday workout


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley didn't work out Monday as he continues to recover from an ankle issue, MLB.com reports.

Utley won't play in the spring opener and said Monday that he'll miss this week's slate of games entirely, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. The second baseman that while his ankle has improved in the last week, it's still pretty swollen and he has yet to begin running.

Utley suffered the ankle injury in January after stepping on a baseball.

"I'm making a little progress," Utley said, per MLB.com. "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. I'd like to get out there as soon as possible.

"There's no sense in overdoing it and screwing something else up, especially when we have a month until the season starts."


Phillies to hold Chase Utley out of spring training opener


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) Citing his ankle issue and need to be ready, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said second baseman Chase Utley will not play in Tuesday's spring training opener, reports The News Journal.

Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has no plans to request trade


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has become a cornerstone of the organization. Because of that, the 36-year-old said he has no plans to ask for a trade to a better team or a playoff team, according to MLB.com.

"I really enjoy playing with this organization," he said. "They've done a lot for me, personally, and put together some pretty good teams over the years. So I have a lot of respect for the people making decisions. They've always put together a great bunch of guys. We made it work out. We've had some great opportunities over the years and I respect that."

Utley hit .270 with 11 home runs and 78 RBI in 2014 and would only think about a trade if the team approached him about it.

"For as much respect as I have for the organization, if they ever came to me and asked me, I would have to listen," Utley said. "But I don't think much will change."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Phillies 2B Chase Utley could get more time off in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley had a tale of two halves offensively in 2014. After batting .293 with a .794 OPS in the first half, Utley hit just .235 with a .674 OPS after the All-Star break.

Manager Ryne Sandberg said he could give the 36-year-old Utley more time off this season to help avoid a drop-off in production.

“It’s important to have bench players that’ll be able to step in and give those guys possibly more of a rest than normal,” Sandberg said, per MLB.com. “But that’s really up to the player and how he’s going. He had an All-Star first half of the season. Still a quality at-bat even if he made outs, still a quality at-bat. But, yeah, I see Chase getting some more days off this year.”

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

"He wants to honor his contract and that's how we have to perceive it." 

Amaro admitted that the team needs to listen to any offer for the 36-year-old Utley, but doesn't perceive Utley changing his mind at this time. Utley hit .270/.339/.407 in 589 at-bats last season.
