According to Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr., Chase Utley will not be in the lineup tonight in Miami. The 2nd baseman reportedly felt burning and pain in his right ribcage following batting practice last night. Due to the sensitivity of a possible rib cage or oblique injury, the team is airing on the side of caution by sitting Utley against the Marlins tonight.
The MRI is scheduled tomorrow during the team's off day. Utley will be heading back to Philadelphia as the rest of his team leaves Florida to begin their weekend series with the Washington Nationals.
