Dodgers, Chase Utley reportedly in ‘serious talks’

Chase Utley Dodgers

Chase Utley may be returning to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a fourth season.

Fan Rag Sports’ Jon Heyman reported on Monday night that Utley and the Dodgers are in “serious talks” about bringing the utility man back.

Utley, 39, batted just .236 last season but had an .866 OPS as a pinch-hitter, so he could be viewed as an asset in that role. Utley appears to be well-liked by his teammates and seems to be viewed by the organization as a strong clubhouse presence. Justin Turner said last month he was hoping the team would re-sign Utley.
