Los Angeles Dodgers sign FA Chase Utley to a 1 year deal

Andy McCullough who covers the Los Angeles Dodgers reports the news the team has re-signed second baseman Chase Utley, 38, to a one year contact .Utley has played second base for the Philadelphia Phillies from 2003-2015 and the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2015-present. Utley became a free agent at the end of the 2016 Major League Baseball season when his contract expired.Despite his age of 38 years, Utley had no intention to retire from playing baseball in 2017 since he felt he still has something left in his tank.As a free agentm Utley had the option of either retiring or seeking employment with another team in the Major Leagues that is in contention to make another playoff run in 2017.With the addition of Logan Forsythe from the Tampa Bay Rays in a trade that happened on January 23, 2017 in exchange for right handed pitcher Jose De Leon, it is possible that Utley will either be an insurance policy for the Dodgers this upcoming baseball season or he will be playing in a reserve role with the team this year.Spring training will determine the role Utley will have with the Dodgers in the 2017 Major League Baseball season whether he be will be the starting second baseman or a reserve player.News source is Rotoworld.com and the image is from Pinterest.com
