Chase Utley set to DH for Dodgers on Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2015) Chase Utley will make his Dodgers debut Friday night in Houston, but not at his familiar second base position. He is batting second and serving as the designated hitter. It's the sixth time he has been a DH in his long National League career.

Utley arrives on a roll. He had 15 hits in his last 31 at-bats before leaving Philadelphia.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dodgers land 2B Chase Utley from Phillies for pair of prospects


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The farmhands in question are infielder/outfielder Darnell Sweeney and right-hander John Richey.

He has finally come out of a year-long funk at the plate with an eight-game hitting streak during which he is batting .484 (15-for-31).

Utley had played his entire 13-year career in Philadelphia.

Report: Phillies place Chase Utley on trade waivers; Giants interested


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/10/2015) The Phillies reportedly placed Chase Utley on revocable trade waivers on Sunday, FoxSports is reporting. Teams would have 47 hours to place a claim on the veteran second baseman, leaving Tuesday as the final day before his waiver period expires.

If he goes unclaimed, the Phillies would then be free to trade him to any team--once they have Utley's approval, as he has 5-and-10 rights, which gives him a full no-trade clause.

Utley, who has been with the Phillies for the duration of his 13-year career, just came off of the disabled list on Friday. Though he has been struggling for the majority of the 2015 season, he has looked a little better since his return, going 4 for 10 with three doubles.

The Giants are said to be a team that has been scouting Utley recently, according to CSN Philadelphia. The Giants are without everyday second baseman Joe Panik due to a back injury, and there is currently no timetable for his return. Utley would provide a solid veteran presence for the Giants, as they continue to push for postseason play.

Most players have aches and pains through the year. So I'm not shocked with that. It's really showing no improvement. So I think it's a good time to get it right. We will have a cortisone shot tomorrow. We'll take a little time off and hopefully, that will get it squared away."

Phillies debating whether to trim 2B Chase Utley's playing time


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/22/2015) Veteran second baseman Chase Utley is having an awful season, and with a contract kicker approaching and the development of a young player at the position, the Phillies' braintrust is weighing whether to continue reducing Utley's playing time over the final half of the season, per MLB.com.
