Chase a native of California was drafted by the Phillies with the 15th pick of the 2000 amateur draft. Utley made his Major League debut in 2003. In 2005 he became the full time 2nd basemen after 2nd baseman Placido Polanco was traded to Tigers. Has been the Phillies 2nd basemen until today. Now Chase gets to reunite with his good friend SS Jimmy Rollins that was traded to the Dodgers in December 2014 Jimmy should be happy to get his buddy side by side with him on the field again.
