Get ready to hear Chase Utley's name a lot.  As the calender is set to turn to July, the Major League baseball trading season is about to heat up.

(Listen to ESPN's Keith Law discuss the Phillies trade possibilities)

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Royals have discussed the possibility of trading for Utley.  Earlier this week, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that the Phillies are more likely to trade Utley and Michael Young than pitchers Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon.

Utley and Young can become free agents this winter.

Get ready Phillies fans, Philadelphia should be one of the most active sellers at the July 31 trade deadline, even if Lee and Papelbon don't go.
