Utley may be heading to the West Coast





The deal was just announced late this afternoon, Chase Utley may be on his way to the West Coast and the LA Dodgers.

Despite just yesterday saying that Utley may remain a Phillie, General Manager Ruben Amaro has now acknowledge that the possibility of an Utley deal may be at hand.

The deal with the Dodgers has the Phillies sending $2 million of Chase Utley's salary along with Utley for a pair of minor leaguers. No names have been discussed yet coming from the Dodgers and the deal as of 6:15 PM hasn't been announced as official.

Utley had been the Phillies longest tenured player and the longest tenured player in the city of Philadelphia in professional sports. His career as a Phillie will always be appreciated by the fans who really took to his great style of hustling. Although at times he appeared rough around the edges especially when cursing on national TV a few times during his Phillies career.
