Chase Utley is back in the three-hole Wednesday.

Utley had five hits (four doubles) in his 12 at-bats batting sixth for the Phillies. Hopefully that'll serve as a jumpstart for the veteran second baseman, who's still slashing just .148/.230/.262 overall in 2015.

Chase Utley is absent from the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

It's just a day of rest. Andres Blanco is handling second base in Utley's place.
May 17 - 11:10 AM

Chase Utley hit a pinch-hit single against the Mets on Saturday.

Utley stepped in with one out in the ninth inning and his team down a run. He managed to single against closer Jeurys Familia, but a winning rally was not to be. The former All-Star has struggled mightily this season, hitting just .109/.183/.207.
May 9 - 10:06 PM

Chase Utley is back in the Phillies' lineup Friday.

Utley hasn't played since Monday, as manager Ryne Sandberg wanted to give the struggling second baseman an extended break. The 36-year-old sports an ugly .103/.182/.207 batting line in 25 games this season.
May 8 - 2:29 PM

Chase Utley is expected to sit out until Friday.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg wants to give the struggling second baseman three full days of rest. Utley, 36, is batting just .103/.182/.207 in 25 games this season.
May 5 - 4:45 PM

Chase Utley's struggles at the plate continued, finishing 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

It's been a season-long slump for the six-time All-Star, as he entered Sunday's game with a .422 OPS. He came to the plate with runners on base four times against the Marlins and failed to produce in each opportunity. The 36-year-old's durability issues are well known, but his poor start to the season still comes as a surprise. Utley owns a meager .108/.181/.217 triple-slash line with three home runs and 14 RBI.
May 3 - 4:06 PM

Chase Utley provided all of the Phillies' offense in Friday's loss to the Marlins, blasting a three-run homer off Tom Koehler in the fourth inning.

It was Utley's lone hit in four at-bats on the night. He has been it quite the funk to begin the 2015 campaign, slashing a brutal .122/.200/.243 with three homers and 14 RBI in the middle of the Phillies lineup.
May 1 - 11:51 PM

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Thursday.

It's just a day of rest for the veteran second baseman, who's batting .114/.198/.200 in 81 plate appearances this season. Utley did hit some balls hard on Wednesday night, so maybe he's ready to snap out of this early rut. Cesar Hernandez will fill in at second base Thursday in the Phillies' series finale against the Cardinals.
Apr 30 - 10:52 AM

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Thursday.

Carlos Ruiz and Ryan Howard are also getting the day off. Utley, 36, is batting just .120/.161/.240 in 56 plate appearances this season. Cesar Hernandez will start at second base Thursday versus the Marlins.
Apr 23 - 10:20 AM

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

It's just a routine day of rest. Cesar Hernandez is playing second base Sunday in Utley's place, while Cody Asche has assumed the No. 3 spot in the batting order.
Apr 19 - 10:27 AM

Chase Utley went 3-for-3 with a pair of home runs and a stolen base but the Phillies dropped Tuesday's game to the Mets.

Utley laced a Matt Harvey offering down the right field line for a solo home run in the first inning, knocked in a run with a single in the third, and hit another solo home run in the eighth off of Sean Gilmartin. He was also hit by a pitch in what was a contentious game between the two NL East rivals. Utley had been ice cold entering the night, batting .091 in 22 at-bats.
Apr 14 - 10:37 PM

After getting Sunday off, Chase Utley went 0-for-3 with an error in his return to the lineup on Monday.

He actually had two misplays at second base. Utley finished the spring in very strong fashion, but he's just 2-for-22 with no extra-base hits to start the regular season. The cold start likely had a lot to do with the early day off Sunday.
Apr 13 - 4:22 PM

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

Neither is Carlos Ruiz, as the Phillies are going with Carlos Hernandez at second base and Cameron Rupp at catcher. Max Scherzer should face little resistance Sunday.
Apr 12 - 10:47 AM

Some baseball executives told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe that they believe Chase Utley "will eventually give in" and waive his no-trade clause.

Utley has resisted being traded in the past, although he did indicate at the beginning of spring training that he'd be willing to listen should the Phillies come to him about waiving the clause. The 36-year-old is owed $10 million in 2015 and has $15 million vesting options each of the next three seasons after that. Utley batted .419/.486/.871 with four homers during spring training.
