Dodgers Reportedly Secure Utley
Sunday, Dec. 6
On Dec. 3, Jayson Stark reported on Los Angeles' interest in bringing the 36-year-old veteran back for 2016. On Dec. 2, ESPN's Mark Saxon reported the Dodgers covet Utley as a left-handed batter and backup infielder.
Report: Angels Interested in Utley
Thursday, Dec. 3
Utley appeared in 34 games for L.A. and struggled en route to a .202 batting average in that span. In 107 contests this past season, he accrued an average of .212 with eight home runs and 39 RBI.
Despite Utley's down year, Stark reported that he has other unnamed suitors on the open market but would rather remain in the Golden State. Philadelphia had the worst record in all of baseball in 2015, which didn't help his cause and played a role in his decline.
There's no shortage of talent on the Dodgers and Angels, who won 92 and 85 games, respectively, in 2015. Both could use a veteran presence in the clubhouse like Utley with World Series experience.
With little time left as a player, the six-time All-Star is certainly thinking on the right track if he wants a shot at a second Commissioner's Trophy.
