Utley scratched from lineup

After playing the last two games without Ryan Howard, the Phils took the field on Tuesday night without Chase Utley.

Howard returned after sitting out two games with a left knee injury, but Utley was a late scratch from the lineup after experiencing pain in his right side after pregame batting practice.

A Phillies spokesman said the injury was on Utley's upper right side. (Read: rib cage or oblique region).

Utley will be reevaluated on Wednesday.

Freddy Galvis started at second base in place of Utley against the Marlins.
