Dodgers: Chase Utley to Make SNLA Broadcast Debut

Utley will check into the broadcast booth to make his debut as the Dodgers take on the Angels.

Longtime Phillies and Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley will join the broadcast booth for the Freeway Series with the Anaheim Angels.

Playing Career

Utley, 40, was a member of the Dodgers from 2015 to 2018 as a key contributor and veteran presence for the 2017 and 2018 World Series run teams.

The Silver Fox holds a lifetime .275 batting average, .843 on-base plus slugging, and blasted 259 home runs across 16 MLB seasons.

Utley was a six-time All-Star for the Philadelphia Phillies and won a World Series title with them in 2008.

Utley’s Assets

He brings quite the resumé to the broadcast booth, but a large portion of the reason why he has been added is because he is well-regarded as one of the most knowledge baseball minds of the last couple decades.

As a member of the Dodgers’ clubs for the last four years, we heard quite often that Utley was something of a second manager in the clubhouse.

Good luck to Chase Utley in this next stage of his life.
