Rejoice, city of Philadelphia! For Chase Utley will wear a Phillies uniform beyond the 2013 season.
No word on the details yet but you’ll have a few more seasons to admire that slicked back hair.
UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal adds that it will likely be a two-year guarantee with multiple vesting options.
The Phillies are close to signing Utley to a two-year extension with multiple vesting options, according to major-league sources. The total guaranteed money in the deal will be in the “high 20s,” one source said — between $25 million and $30 million.
More on the specifics as they become available…
According to source, Phillies and Utley reach agreement on contract extension. http://t.co/aO834S8Q0c
