Chase Utley went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a walk in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Utley's RBI double in the seventh inning drew the Dodgers to within 7-3. It looked like a comeback might be in order, but neither team would score again in the contest. The veteran second baseman no longer holds much fantasy allure. For the season as a whole, he is hitting to a .251/.317/.382 triple-slash with 12 homers and 47 RBI over 471 at-bats. Prior to Thursday's nice showing, Utley had been stuck in a 1-for-25 slump.

Chase Utley is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday.

He'll get a breather against Marlins right-hander Tom Koehler while Howie Kendrick starts at second base and will hit leadoff for the Dodgers. Look for Utley to be back atop the Dodgers lineup on Sunday.

Chase Utley (foot) returned to the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday, going 1-for-5 with a double in a losing effort against the Cubs.

Utley drove home a run and scored a run in the contest. The veteran second baseman sat out Thursday's game due to a troublesome foot that had been bothering him. With his 1-for-5 effort Friday, he's now hitting .258/.328/.398 on the season with 11 homers and 42 RBI in 415 at-bats on the year.

Chase Utley (foot) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Giants.

Utley's been bothering him lately so he'll get the night off on Thursday. Charlie Culbertson will handle second base in his stead while hitting ninth against Giants southpaw Matt Moore. Utley, who will soon be reunited with former Phillies backstop Carlos Ruiz, is day-to-day.

Chase Utley was removed from Tuesday's win over the Giants with a lingering foot issue.

Utley didn't actually start the game, but he singled and scored as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning and stayed on for defense in the seventh before leaving in the eighth. "He's been maintenancing his foot for about a month," manager Dave Roberts said late Tuesday night. "That's why we had to get him out of the game. He couldn't stay on his feet any longer. Chase will be day to day."

Chase Utley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Utley burned Anthony DeSclafani for a solo shot in the first inning and picked up an RBI single in the third. While the veteran second baseman is slashing a middling .256/.327/.399 this season, he has picked up six two-hit games in his last 10 contests. Utley can still be safely avoided in most fantasy formats, but his recent hot bat makes him an interesting DFS option.
Aug 21 - 4:57 PM

Chase Utley enjoyed his return to Philadelphia on Tuesday, launching a solo home run and a grand slam in a win over the Phillies.

He took Vincent Velasquez deep in the fifth inning and then smacked a grand slam off of Michael Mariot in the seventh. It was quite a scene in Philly, as the Phillies' fans gave their former star a curtain call after each of his home runs. The veteran second baseman now has 10 longballs on the season and has recorded multiple hits in four of his last six games.
Aug 16 - 11:33 PM

Chase Utley said Monday that he plans to play next season.

Utley, who is currently playing his 14th season in the majors, was asked about his future before playing against the Phillies for the first time. The 37-year-old has faded in a big way since his hot start to the season and owns a .250/.327/.372 batting line overall. He's due to be a free agent this winter.
Aug 8 - 8:01 PM

Chase Utley went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI to help the Dodgers double up the Nationals 8-4 on Tuesday.

Utley led off the game with a solo homer against heralded young pitcher Reynaldo Lopez, and he tacked on RBI singles in the second and eighth innings for good measure. The home run was his sixth of the year, giving him 30 RBI and 46 runs scored. The 37-year-old is batting .266/.347/.389 overall.
Jul 19 - 11:42 PM

Chase Utley is not in the Dodgers' lineup Monday versus the Rockies.

He'll get the day off while Howie Kendrick will get a start at second base. Justin Turner is hitting leadoff Monday.
Jun 6 - 6:48 PM

Continuing his turn as public enemy No. 1 in New York, Chase Utley homered twice and drove in five runs as the Dodgers trounced the Mets 9-1 on Saturday.

Utley hit a solo homer in the fourth inning before blasting a grand slam in the seventh. That wasn't even the most excitement that centered around the second baseman, as Mets starter Noah Syndergaard was ejected in the third inning for throwing near Utley. All the vitriol stems from Utley's take-out slide that broke Ruben Tejada's leg last October. All the sideshows have drawn attention away from the fact that Utley is now hitting a healthy .296/.386/.453 in 44 games.
May 28 - 11:21 PM

Chase Utley continued to play the role of Mets nemesis on Friday by driving in four of the Dodgers’ five runs.

It was Utley’s first game action at Citi Field since he broke Ruben Tejada’s leg on a "slide" into second base during the NLDS in Los Angeles last October. Mets fans let him have it, but it didn’t knock Utley off his game. In addition to drawing two walks, he had a sacrifice fly in the third inning and tied the ballgame up with a dramatic bases-clearing double in the top of the ninth inning. The Mets would go on to win the game in the bottom of the frame, but Utley continues to produce at the top of the order for the Dodgers. The 37-year-old is batting .292/.385/.416 over 43 games.
May 27 - 10:49 PM

Chase Utley is not in Monday's lineup versus the Mets.

The much-anticipated Mets-Utley showdown will have to wait, as Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is going with right-handed bats against left-hander Steven Matz. Howie Kendrick will start at second base.
May 9 - 5:54 PM

Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, which accounted for the only runs that the Dodgers scored in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

It's been a tough stretch of games for the 37-year-old. He's hitting 2-for-21 (.095) in his last six games, but his crazy-hot start to the campaign means he still boasts a .286/.375/.440 slash line and bats lead-off for the Dodgers. Despite that, he currently ranks outside the top-20 fantasy second basemen and isn't a desirable option outside of deep mixed leagues and standard NL-only leagues. In fact, if Howie Kendrick can find any success whatsoever at the plate, he'll probably start to eat into Utley's playing time as the season progresses.
