It's a small price to pay for the veteran infielder who is lauded for his clubhouse presence and professionalism, although we must point out that the 39-year-old has batted just .235/.310/.382 over the last three seasons.

  • Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Chase Utley has signed a two-year deal with the Dodgers.<p><b>Advice</b>: He'll get a $2 million total guarantee, per Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times. It's a bit surprising that Utley was able to land a multi-year pact given that he's entering his age-39 season and many younger players in this market have had to settle for one-year deals or non-guaranteed minor league contracts. But the Dodgers love his veteran clubhouse presence and the coverage he gives them at multiple spots on the infield. Utley hit .236/.324/.405 over 353 plate appearances with the National League champs in 2017.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/JonHeyman/status/963528279788523524">Jon Heyman on Twitter</a></p>

  • According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Dodgers have reached an agreement with Chase Utley.<p><b>Advice</b>: No word yet on the terms involved. Utley turned 39 in December and had an underwhelming .236/.324/.405 batting line last season, but the Dodgers value his presence in the clubhouse. And so, he'll hang on for at least one more year. He'll likely serve as a backup infielder and pinch hitter in 2018.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/JonHeyman/status/963448251558096896">Jon Heyman on Twitter</a></p>
