It will be his last. Then 29 years of age, Utley hit.292/.380/.515 with 33 homers during the regular season and played a pivotal role in helping the Phils advance beyond the NLCS against his current organization, the Dodgers.
The Dodgers second baseman and longtime Mets nemesis is planning to announce his retirement at a press conference Friday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, The Post's Joel Sherman reported. He leaves the game as a six-time All-Star and four-time Silver Slugger Award-winner.
The 2019 season would have been the final year of a $2 million, two-year contract.
Utley, 39, has played 16 seasons in the majors. Utley had some lost seasons due to injury, but in 1,907 career games, he's slashed.276/.358/.466 with 1,880 hits, 1,100 runs, 259 home runs, 1,025 RBI and 153 stolen bases.

He has started 30 of 57 games so far, hitting.231 with 14 RBIs and one home run going into Friday night's game against the Angels. The Phillies traded him to the Dodgers in August 2015 for minor league players Darnell Sweeney and John Richy.
Utley will surely be farewell feted when the Dodgers visit the Phillies from July 23-25.
Utley's best season, by measure of wins above replacement, came in 2008 when he helped lead the Phillies to a World Series Championship.
Born in nearby Pasadena, Utley played at Long Beach Poly High and UCLA.
