PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – As MLB’s trade deadline approaches, one name that appears to be completely out of every trade rumor is Phillies second baseman Chase Utley.

Utley and the Phillies are working on a two or three year contract extension, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.  The deal, which would either be two years, or two years with a vesting option for a third year, would be worth about $13 million per year.

Ruben Amaro has repeatedly said that he wants Utley to be a Phillie for the rest of his career, and it’s unlikely he’s traded.

Trade rumors for Michael Young are still prevalent, but those for Cliff Lee have quieted since the Red Sox trade for Jake Peavey.
