Dodgers | Chase Utley not in lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:16:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is not in the lineup Saturday, Aug. 29, and 2B Jose Peraza will start and bat eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: Peraza has just one hit in six at-bats this year and isn't a viable fantasy option.

Dodgers | Chase Utley staring slow with LAD

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 17:57:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley went 1-for-5 with a double and a run scored in a 3-2 loss to the Houston Astros Sunday, Aug. 23, and he has two hits in 13 at-bats since joining the Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is hitting just .214 for the year, and the change of scenery hasn't helped yet. Until he picks up his performance, he isn't worth owning at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Chase Utley hitting second in debut

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:13:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is serving as the designated hitter and batting second in his debut with the Dodgers against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: A .484 average (15-for-31) with a home run and five RBI since returning from the DL should make you confident in using Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) on FantasyScore for the time being, especially now that he's in a much more potent offense. As long as he's healthy before Howie Kendrick returns from the DL, Utley should see everyday at-bats for the Blue.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick will return as starter

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 09:46:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring), who is expected to return in roughly three weeks, will return to the starting second base job when he's healthy despite the acquisition of 2B Chase Utley, according to general manager Farhan Zaidi. Utley has worked at first and third base, so he could move to a utility role when Kendrick is back.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is having a great season for the Dodgers and should be held in all formats. Utley's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) daily value will be more intriguing playing for the first-place Dodgers, especially when considering he's hit well since returning from the DL. However, his boost in value in standard leagues will be short-lived, since he'll likely be in a utility role in several weeks.

Phillies | PHI receives prospects for Chase Utley

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 19:45:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Phillies will receive minor league INF/OF Darnell Sweeney and P John Richy, in exchange for 2B Chase Utley. The Phillies are also sending $4 million to the Dodgers to offset the remaining $5.85 million Utley is owed.

Fantasy Tip: Cesar Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will officially become the team's primary second baseman, while Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is expected to see the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner with Maikel Franco (wrist) on the disabled list. Sweeney hit .271 with nine home runs, 49 RBIs and 32 steals in 116 games for Class AAA Oklahoma City this season, while Richy was 10-5 with a 4.20 ERA in 22 games (18 starts) for Class A Rancho Cucamonga.

Dodgers | Chase Utley deal finalized

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 19:32:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Dodgers have received 2B Chase Utley from the Philadelphia Phillies, in exchange for minor league OF Darnell Sweeney and P John Richy. The Phillies are also sending $4 million to the Dodgers to offset the remaining $5.85 million Utley is owed.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is batting .217 with five home runs and 30 RBIs in 73 games this season. He will see regular time at the keystone position while Howie Kendrick ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is on the disabled list and could also see occasional action at first base.

Phillies | Chase Utley dealt by Philly

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 16:18:35 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired 2B Chase Utley from the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Utley's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) absence leaves a couple holes in the Philadelphia infield, as Miakel Franco (wrist) is out, too. Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) projects to receive everyday starts at third base, while Cesar Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) returns to the starting gig at the keystone. Freddy Galvis ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will continue to start at shortstop. They're all low-end options in the majority of seasonal formats. Galvis and Hernandez won't kill your batting average though, and Hernandez is also an excellent source of speed.

Dodgers | L.A. agrees on Chase Utley deal

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 12:54:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Angels agreed on a deal to acquire Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley Wednesday, Aug. 19, but the deal hasn't officially been signed. The Phillies are also sending $2 million to the Dodgers for two minor leaguers.

Fantasy Tip: Wait to hear for an official confirmation, but it does indeed look like Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will leave Philly to join the first-place Dodgers in the National League West. Utley has been hitting very well since returning from the DL, and his fantasy stock will rise now that he's playing for a much more potent offense. However, his increased value may be short-lived when Howie Kendrick returns from injury next month.

Dodgers | L.A. close to landing Chase Utley

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 12:23:39 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is moving close to being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, Aug. 19, according to sources. No deal has been finalized, but both clubs are moving in that direction. One source said that if a trade doesn't happen today, Utley will remain with the Phillies for the rest of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has a full no-trade clause, so he must first agree to a trade to L.A. before it's official. A move to the Dodgers and a contending team should boost Utley's fantasy value a bit, especially given the way he's played since returning from the DL. However, once Howie Kendrick returns from the DL, Utley's playing time could be sparse.

Phillies | Chase Utley trade imminent?

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:59:25 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley could be involved in a trade Wednesday, Aug. 19, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has looked fully healthy since his return from the DL, and the results are backing that up. If he's traded out of Philly, it should only help increase his fantasy value down the stretch while playing for a contender. Playing time could be hard to come by next month, though.
