Chase Utley’s Role Continues Changing

Plus he gives a great World Series parade speech.

Utley’s upside is the “clubhouse presence” he brings, as has been widely reported since he first showed up in LA in mid-2015. As a should-be Hall of Famer, Utley possesses “gravitas and dedication that rubs off on his teammates,” which might be expected of a 39-year-old with his 16-year resume. Six trips to the All-Star Game and a World Series ring are highlights on his reel. With those days gone, his role will likely revolve making contributions in a capacity similar to the one he was considered for with the Phillies earlier in the offseason.
