Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley would prefer to remain with the team if it were up to him. The Phillies are currently 42-53 and in last place in the National League East, and they might try to dangle their veterans in trades for prospects before the July 31 deadline. Utley is owed $15 million next year. "If someone at some point comes up to me and says you're not wanted in Philadelphia anymore, I might have to rethink that," he said. "I think if I was a betting man I would say probably there will be no change."
