Phillies | Chase Utley difficult to let go

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley and his representation could be approached by the team's front office about an extension, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., although it's not something the team is pushing for presently. "We may have some discussions with him, out of respect for him and what he meant to our organization," Amaro said. "We can always bring him back if we trade him. That's a possibility. But I don't really want him to leave."

Fantasy Tip: Amaro said he expects the Phils' decision to buy or sell to go down to the wire, barring a significant streak one way or another. It sounds like he's willing to part with Utley in the short term as long as he gets a shot to bring him back, on the club's terms. How likely that is, we'll see, but Utley and the club managed his health well this year, a building block for Utley's final seasons.
