Chase Utley was held out Tuesday night’s lineup because of a bruised foot. Utley, who also did not play on Saturday, was hit by a pitch by Mike Pelfrey on Friday night.
“He wanted to play [Tuesday night],” said Charlie Manuel. “But I felt like there was no sense in taking a chance on it getting any worse. I don’t want him to be down for a long period of time.”
Utley was available to pinch hit, but Manuel did not want to use him unless the game was on the line. Utley should be back in Wednesday’s lineup.
