Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Padres.

San Diego is starting southpaw Clayton Richard, and Utley -- along with several other left-handed Los Angeles hitters -- usually get the night off when that's the case. Logan Forsythe will play second base in Utley's place.
Sep 27 - 6:56 PM

Chase Utley cracked two doubles and scored two runs in a win over the Nationals on Saturday.

The 38-year-old second baseman drew a rare start as the leadoff batter and did a good job of catalyzing the offense. He has played in 117 games but has gotten only 286 at-bats this year. He is slashing .234/.324/.406 with eight home runs, 32 RBI and 40 runs scored.
Sep 16 - 4:13 PM

Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's extra-innings win over the Royals.

Utley was the catalyst for the Dodgers' decisive run, leading off the 10th inning with a walk and stealing second base. The steal was his fourth in five tries this year. Three walks later, the 38-year-old came home to score the winning run. He's had a good series against the Royals -- he picked up his 1,000th RBI in Friday's game -- but Utley's time as a productive hitter is long gone. The veteran is hitting just .226/.326/.390 on the year.
Jul 9 - 12:50 AM

Chase Utley finished 2-for-4 with a double, run scored and RBI in Friday's game against Kansas City, reaching 1,000 RBI for his career.

Utley is the ninth active player in the majors to reach the milestone. He continues to be a serviceable fantasy option when playing at Dodger Stadium, hitting .260 (26-for-100) with 10 doubles, three homers and 14 RBI while posting an .809 OPS. He is a dismal 17-for-91 (.187) with just six extra-base hits and a .616 OPS on the road.
Jul 8 - 5:00 AM

Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with a double and a strikeout in Monday's loss to the Angels.

The Angels cooled off the Dodgers in this one, with the boys from Los Angeles finishing with just five hits in the shutout loss. Utley's double was his ninth of the season. The elder second baseman has picked up two-baggers in two of his last three games, but is hitting just .229/.330/.388 with four homers and 20 RBI in 170 at-bats for the season as a whole.
Jun 27 - 1:14 AM

Chase Utley finished 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's win against Cincinnati.

Utley has picked up the intensity, going 20-for-65 (.308) with three doubles, a triple, three homers and 10 RBI over the past 21 games. It's not quite the same success from halcyon days in Philadelphia, but he has been quite productive for fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Jun 11 - 4:57 AM

Chase Utley finished 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

Utley has cooled off a bit after a hot finish to the month of May, going just 3-for-20 (.150) over the past seven outings. Despite the fact he has tailed off a bit, he remains a decent play in most NL-only fantasy leagues and as a mid-tier option in DFS.
Jun 7 - 4:13 AM

Chase Utley went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

He was also hit by a pitch, reaching base four times. Utley got off to a slow start this season but has his batting line up to .252/.347/.430 after a nice stretch.
May 30 - 11:51 PM

Chase Utley singled and swatted a solo homer Monday in St. Louis.

Utley got the scoring going with a long blast off of Mike Leake that went over the right-center field wall. The veteran second baseman has been playing regularly of late with Justin Turner (hamstring) out and has hit .324 with three homers over his last 11 games.
May 29 - 5:16 PM

Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's win against the Cubs.

Utley has pieced together a modest three-game hitting streak and he has driven in at least one run (five total RBI) during the span. The veteran second baseman has driven in 12 runs over his past 15 games to re-emerge as a useful fantasy option in most NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats.
May 28 - 12:40 AM

Chase Utley went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Utley had not hit a home run entering action on Thursday, but he finally got that monkey off his back when he socked a solo shot off Michael Wacha in the second inning. The veteran second baseman acts as a nice clubhouse presence, but not so much with the bat, as he is slashing a mere .204/.292/.312 on the season.
May 26 - 1:23 AM

Chase Utley went 2-for-2 with two RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Utley also drew a walk in the contest. He was feeling frisky on the basepaths, attempting two steals on the evening. He went 1-for-2 in those attempts, with the successful one counting as his second of the season. While the veteran infielder has picked up hits in three of his last four games, he sports an uninspiring .216/.314/.311 triple-slash overall.
May 19 - 1:49 AM

Chase Utley went 3-for-5 with an RBI triple in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

The triple was the veteran's first of the season. He also singled twice in the contest. After picking up just six hits through his first 52 at-bats, Utley's bat has woken up over the past two days -- he is 5-for-8 in that space. This little bevy has brought his average up to a still-woeful .183, a sign of just how much he has struggled this season.
May 12 - 12:12 AM

Chase Utley is starting at first base and hitting seventh for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

This will be Utley's 31st career game at first base. Chris Taylor will be manning second base and is hitting sixth.
