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.

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.

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.
Jun 26 - 11:53 PM

Chase Utley went 0-for-4 and committed his fifth error of the year Monday versus the Marlins.

Utley was hitting .384 on April 23 and .335 on May 23. Now on June 23, he's under .300 for the first time all year, slipping to .295. His OPS is under .600 for the last four weeks, too.
Jun 23 - 11:00 PM

Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and two runs scored as the Phillies defeated the Cardinals 4-1 on Thursday.

Utley has cooled off since his torrid start to the season, but still sports a fantastic .305/.364/.474 slash line with 33 RBI. Depending on the metric and the playing time threshold, Utley remains the best-hitting second baseman in the game, with Luis Valbuena being his closest competitor.
Jun 19 - 11:27 PM

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Braves.

It's just a day of rest for the veteran second baseman. Cesar Hernandez will start in his place.
Jun 17 - 4:02 PM

Chase Utley went 3-for-3 with a sacrifice fly Friday against the Reds.

Utley had just three hits in 16 at-bats this month coming into Friday's action. The 35-year-old has enjoyed a resurgent season even with his recent struggles, batting .320/.379/.505 with four home runs and 29 RBI over 55 games. He's a deserving candidate to start at second base for the NL in next month's All-Star Game.
Jun 6 - 11:02 PM

Chase Utley went 0-for-5 in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Utley has been slumping, entering Wednesday's action with a .643 OPS in 44 plate appearances dating back to May 25. His OPS reached .973 in mid-May but is now down to .868. Utley is still the best-hitting second baseman in baseball, but the gap has shrunk considerably over the last two weeks.
Jun 5 - 12:13 AM

Chase Utley is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a day off against lefty Jon Niese. Domonic Brown is also getting a breather versus the southpaw.
Jun 1 - 10:53 AM

Chase Utley went 2-for-4 with a walk and a game-tying RBI single in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Facing Rockies lefty Boone Logan in the ninth inning, Utley laced an RBI single to right field to score a scampering Tony Gwynn, Jr., knotting the game up at three. Utley has been nearly unstoppable through two months, slashing .335/.389/.548. He is by far the most productive offensive second baseman so far, but his spotty health history still leaves a bit of an uneasy feeling for fantasy owners.
May 28 - 11:14 PM

Chase Utley went 2-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Reds.

Utley's two singles represented one-third of the Phillies' hits on the night, another shutout. The club hasn't scored since Tuesday. Utley bolsters his slash line to .347/.404/.569 as he remains the best-hitting second baseman in the game.
May 16 - 10:01 PM

Chase Utley went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

Utley put the Phillies up 1-0 with his fourth-inning RBI triple and he would quickly come around to score on a Ryan Howard single. The second baseman's numbers have fallen back to earth a bit after a scorching start to the season, but still owns an impressive .338/.399/.559 slash line, each the best at the position.
