Just when you think Chase Utley is finally washed up and reached the end of his career, he goes out and has a month like he did this past May. A guy that’s all business on the field, Utley proved he’s nowhere near done.
He had one of the best offensive months in all of baseball, hitting .314 and slugging three big home runs. It’s also worth noting that over the second half of the month, Utley hit .333 and hit all three of those home runs in a five-game span. Here’s hoping that he’s catching fire.

Utley has also hit in the clutch, as he’s taken on the role of spark plug for the Dodger offense. It seems as though every time Chase gets on base, either via walk or hit, the offense starts to come alive. The “Silver Fox” will look to continue this pace, and hopefully, continue to provide that jolt to the offense all year long.
Final slash line in May: .314/.402/.571
