Jon Heyman reports that the Dodgers have brought back Chase Utley on a two-year contract. He’ll make two million in his somewhat surprising multi-year deal.

Utley had been under consideration to be the Phillies bench coach at one point early this offseason, but he’s apparently still looking to keep his playing career going.  He hit .236/.324/.405 while making 353 plate appearances in 127 regular-season games. He played in the postseason, and despite being a non-factor, the Dodgers value his veteran presence and leadership.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
