In an unprecedented move, Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley has called a press conference on Friday. At that press conference, he is expected to announce his retirement.

At the moment, The Capital Sports Report does not know if he’ll be retiring immediately. Or he’ll make the announcement now and will retire at the end of the season.

At the 6:15 pm EST press conference, Utley is expected to announce he will retire at the end of the season. He is going to walk away with one-year left on his deal for 2019.

He will have at least one last visit to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia before his retirement. The Dodgers visit the City of Brotherly Love in two weeks, where Phillies fans will show him love all weekend.

“The Man,” as he was commonly referred to in Philadelphia, has spent three-plus-years with the Dodgers. The Phillies traded him to his hometown team in July 2015, as his former team was rebuilding for a brighter future.

This season, Utley has appeared in 57 games. He has just a .231 batting average with one home run and 14 RBIs. He has just 30 hits in 130 at-bats.

In his career, Utley played 16 seasons. He was a six-time All-Star and a four-time Silver Slugger.

The Man was also a part of the 2008 Philadelphia Phillies World Series team.
