LEADING OFF: Utley retirement tour, Gray back from minors

A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
STEPPING AWAY
The Chase Utley retirement tour is underway. Utley announced Friday that he will retire at the end of the season, capping a 16-year career that included a World Series championship with Philadelphia and an elder statesman role with the Dodgers. The six-time All-Star said he’s leaving to spend more time with his wife and two young sons. Utley announced his decision at a jammed news conference at Dodger Stadium, with several of his teammates surprising him by crowding into the small room. Utley has 259 career homers with a .276 average and 1,880 hits, though he’ll likely get some Hall of Fame support from voters inclined toward advanced analytics.
