 Chase Utley won't make his Grapefruit League debut tomorrow against the Yankees, at least according to the line-up posted in the Phillies clubhouse this morning.

Utley has been given a few days off to recover from what manager Charlie Manuel has called "routine" soreness in his legs and knees.

Manuel said yesterday that Utley is not injured, that he is just going through the type of soreness that a lot of players go through this time of year. Short stop Jimmy Rollins, on the other hand, is back from his attendance at the Motown Tribute at the White House. He is batting leadoff.

Here is the line-up for tomorrow's game in Tampa, where Cole Hamels will face veteran righty Bartolo Colon:

  1. Jimmy Rollins SS
  2. Ross Gload DH
  3. Raul Ibanez LF
  4. Ryan Howard 1B
  5. Ben Francisco CF
  6. Domonic Brown RF
  7. Jeff Larish 3B
  8. Brian Schneider C
  9. Wilson Valdez 2B

Here is the line-up for the B-Game in Dunedin:

  1. Michael Martinez CF
  2. Harold Garcia 3B
  3. Brandon Moss LF
  4. Tagg Bozied DH
  5. Matthew Rizzotti 1B
  6. Matt Miller RF
  7. Erik Kratz C
  8. Freddy Galvis SS
  9. Cesar Hernandez 2B
