The Phillies' return home from a 7-game road trip was expected to mean that they would again have their regular lineup in place.

That will not be in the case in Game 1 of the day-night doubleheader against the Florida Marlins.

Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley are not in the lineup. Utley missed the seven-game trip with concussion symptoms and has been cleared to return. He is likely to be in the lineup for Game 2.

Here is the lineup for the Phillies against the Marlins' Anibal Sanchez:

1. Victorino, CF

2. Polanco, 3B

3. Pence, RF

4. Howard, 1B

5. Ibanez, LF

6. Orr, 2B

7. Schneider, C

8. Martinez, SS

9. Kendrick P
