Chase Utley went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Phillies' 7-6, come-from-behind victory over the Mets on Sunday.

Utley hit a solo home run early before a two-run triple, his fourth triple of the season, made it a one-run game in the seventh inning. Utley finished a double shy of the cycle, and he's got 10 hits in his last 24 at-bats. The second baseman is hitting .287/.355/.442 with 11 home runs this year.

Chase Utley broke out of his slump, going 2-for-4 with a three-run home run as the Phillies handily defeated the Astros on Wednesday.

Utley entered the night with two hits in his last 27 at-bats. He broke the game open when he belted a three-run home run to right field off of Brad Peacock in the fourth inning, boosting the Phillies' lead up to 8-2 at the time. Utley has wilted big time after a fantastic April and May, but still owns a respectable .281/.349/.428 slash line with 10 home runs and 59 RBI.
Aug 6 - 10:40 PM

Chase Utley blasted a grand slam into the upper deck in right field at Citi Field on Tuesday. It was his only hit in four plate appearances as the Phillies went on to an easy victory.

Utley took reliever Josh Edgin out to right field to break the game wide open at 6-0 in the seventh. It's the fifth grand slam of the veteran second baseman's career, and his first since 2010. The 35-year-old is having another productive year, slashing .291/.353/.439 with nine home runs and 54 RBI.
Jul 29 - 10:05 PM

Chase Utley is out of the Phillies' lineup on Monday.

Jul 28 - 3:13 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Blue Jays and Giants are "taking their best shot" at trading for Chase Utley, but the second baseman is unlikely to be dealt.

Utley has 10-and-5 trade veto rights and doesn't appear eager to leave Philadelphia even though the Phils appear headed for a rebuilding phase. It's possible that his mind can be changed before the end of the month, but at the moment it doesn't sound like the veteran second baseman is going anywhere.

Chase Utley singled and hit a solo home run in four at-bats as the Phillies won their third consecutive game against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Utley gave the Phillies an early 1-0 lead, lining a home run to right field off of Kyle Lohse. It's his second homer of the series and his third consecutive two-hit game. The second baseman is now slashing .294/.351/.453 with eight home runs and 46 RBI. Utley will try to help the Phillies go for a four-game series sweep on Thursday.
Jul 9 - 11:00 PM

Chase Utley knocked in a trio of runs, finishing 2-for-4 as the Phillies narrowly won against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Utley put the Phillies on the board with a sacrifice fly in the first inning, then capped off a five-run second inning with a two-run single. The second baseman had been in a tremendous slump, but has looked renewed at the plate since the team arrived in Milwaukee. Utley, who will start at second base for the National League in the All-Star Game, is slashing .292/.349/.443 with seven home runs and 45 RBI.
Jul 8 - 11:42 PM

Chase Utley, apparently refreshed by his day off, went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk Monday against the Brewers.

Utley's slump is approaching the two-month mark, but maybe this is a good sign it's about to come to an end. The homer was his seventh of the year, and it gave him just his second multi-RBI game since May 24.
Jul 8 - 12:46 AM

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

Ryan Howard is also getting a breather. It's the first time since July 15, 2012 that both players are sitting out the same game when they're healthy. Cesar Hernandez is at second base Sunday, while John Mayberry is at first.

Chase Utley went 1-for-4 with an RBI in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday.

The veteran second baseman continues to produce at a high level offensively, hitting .286/.343/.434 with six homers, 40 RBI and a pair of stolen bases. Even at 35-years-old, he remains one of the top offensive performers at his position in the National League.
Jul 4 - 8:48 PM

Chase Utley went 3-for-7 with an RBI single and a walk-off two-run home run in Thursday's 14-inning victory over the Marlins.

It was Utley's first walk-off hit since 2007, shockingly. It was also the Phillies' only extra-base hit on the night. The second baseman had been slumping badly at the plate, but still maintains a respectable .296/.356/.459 slash line with six home runs and 37 RBI on the season.
