Utley is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins.

Manager Dave Roberts has stacked his lineup with mostly right-handed bats to counter lefty Justin Nicolino. With Adrian Gonzalez back on the active roster, Utley will likely see most of his time at second base moving forward, perhaps as part of a platoon with Chris Taylor. Utley has made just three career starts at third base, so it's hard to imagine he will be a regular replacement for Justin Turner (hamstring) at the hot corner.
