Breaking: Utley has reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Dodgers
The Dodgers ended their season with a lot of uncertainty going forward. A lot of their top players were scheduled to become free agents. As the weeks went on during the off season, the Dodgers free agents came back. The Dodgers announced the signings of Rich Hill, then Justin Turner and then Kenley Jansen. One free agent that may have not garnered as much attention as the other high profile free agents was Dodgers second baseman, Chase Utley. Utley may no longer be the All-Star player he was with the Philadelphia Phillies but you wouldn’t know that if you asked any Dodger player. We took a look at what Utley brings to the Dodgers. Utley is the type of leader and player that brings out the best in his teammates. He plays the game hard and the right way every inning and every at-bat. Chase Utley is what a ball player is supposed to be.
Well tonight there are reports that Chase Utley has agreed to return to the Dodgers on a one year deal.
Chase Utley is coming back to the Dodgers on a one-year deal, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
