Chase Utley spent his best years in the Big Leagues as a player of the Philadelphia Phillies.

It was with the Phillies where he made a name for himself in Major League Baseball and where he managed to be called on six time All-Star, as well as also winning the only World Series championship of his career.

According to Howard Eskin of Fox 29, the Phillies still need to make more coaching moves this offseason and Utley apparently is a candidate.

Eskin explained that with new manager Gabe Kapler, the Phillies are contemplating adding Utley as the bench coach alongside Kapler, both ex-MLB players.

Utley, 38, spent 13 years in the Philadelphia organization, where he left .282 with 233 homers, 916 RBIs and 1,623 hits before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Where he has been more of a mentor than a full-time player and has shown great social and tutoring skills with his mentoring of Dodgers All-Star Corey Seager and other Dodger youngsters.

It is unknown if Utley will officially retire, but he is no longer under contract by the Dodgers after finishing a $2 million dollar deal at the end of the World Series.
