Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers remain in touch with free agent infielder Chase Utley.
McCullough earlier relayed that the Dodgers were looking into possible trades involving Ian Kinsler and Brian Dozier, but they are keeping their options open at second base as the Winter Meetings draw to a close. Should the veteran Utley ultimately move on, the Angels have been linked to him via a report from FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman. Wed, Dec 7, 2016 07:45:00 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears the Angels have emerged as a possibility for Chase Utley.

Utley is from Long Beach, went to UCLA, and spent the last year-and-a-half with the Dodgers, so there probably is some mutual interest here. The veteran second baseman batted .252/.319/.396 with 14 home runs and 52 RBI in 138 games this past season. It should only require a one-year commitment. He turns 38 later this month.

Chase Utley is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cubs.

He'll take a seat with Jon Lester on the mound. Utley is just 2-for-12 in his career against Lester and also sat against a left-hander last series when the Nationals brought Gio Gonzalez to the mound. The Dodgers' Game 1 lineup looks like this: Howie Kendrick LF, Justin Turner 3B, Corey Seager SS, Yasiel Puig RF, Adrian Gonzalez 1B, Carlos Ruiz C, Enrique Hernandez 2B, Joc Pederson CF and Kenta Maeda SP.

Chase Utley smacked a go-ahead RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday as the Dodgers defeated the Nationals 6-5 in Game 4 of the NLDS.

Utley went hitless in his first three at-bats, but he punched a single into right field in the bottom of the eighth with the score tied 5-5 to plate Andrew Toles from second base. And closer Kenley Jansen made it count with a 1-2-3 save. Los Angeles has forced a Game 5 in this best-of-five Division Series. That game will be Thursday in the nation's capital.

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 (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.

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.
