Dodgers Re-Sign Chase Utley

Dodgers Re-Sign Chase Utley”

His value for the Dodgers, however, is not restricted to the diamond - he has been a very important member of the clubhouse, as his work ethic, competitiveness, and hard-nosed play are second to none.

Despite his statistical struggles, the Dodgers still find justification in bringing back Utley - who will turn 40 in December - for his 16th year in the league. Ace Clayton Kershaw raved about Utley. His 65 career Wins Above Replacement are four shy of the average enshrined second baseman, while his seven-year peak is actually better than those lionized keystoners.

Obviously, re-signing the 39-year old Utley doesn't move the needle much for the Dodgers. "We do have some young players that we're looking to get more at-bats for and create more opportunities for".

Utley slashed.236/.324/.405 with 8 home runs, 20 doubles, and 4 triples in 2017. He primarily appeared at second base but also played 17 contests at first base and was a designated hitter on three occasions during interleague play. Forsythe hit.290 with an.870 OPS against left-handed pitchers last season but only.190 with a.576 OPS against right-handers.

"He's obviously had a huge impact these two years on our clubhouse", Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi said of Utley earlier this month before the two sides agreed on a reunion. He might not be the player he was 10 years ago, but he's still a very valuable asset to have.

The Los Angeles Times' Andy McCollough reported on Tuesday that fan mail and Utley's cleats were set up in a locker for him at the team's spring training facility.

Schlitter, 32, has not pitched in the major leagues since 2015 after making 61 appearances with the Chicago Cubs over three seasons (2010, 2014-15).
