The Phillies have fallen to 49-56, and Utley is in the final season of a seven-year contract. With the non-waiver Trade Deadline set for 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Utley's name has been thrown around as someone who could potentially be on the move. However, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has previously stated he thinks Utley could be a "Phillie for life."
While people speculate what could happen to Utley, he kept his comments brief at Ryan Howard's charity event, "Stand Up for Literacy."
"I've enjoyed my off-day, I'm here to support Ryan," said Utley, who is hitting .274 this season. "Obviously, we've had a rough week and a half."
