Utley is out of the lineup Wednesday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's been about a week since Utley last missed a game, so this seems like a routine day off. Chris Taylor will take over second base and Howie Kendrick will lead off with Utley out.

Utley went 3-for-5 with three RBI and a home run Tuesday, leading the Dodgers to and 8-4 victory over the Nationals

EDGE Analysis

Utley is now hitting .266 on the season with just six home runs and 30 RBI. Despite his lack of speed, the veteran second baseman should be a steady source of runs if he continues to bat leadoff, with 46 on the season already.

Utley is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran second baseman gets a well-deserved day off Thursday after collecting six hits in a 14 inning game Wednesday against Baltimore. Howie Kendrick will take over Utley's post at second base and bat leadoff against San Diego lefty Drew Pomeranz. Utley figures to rejoin the lineup Friday with the Dodgers facing right hander Andrew Cashner.

Utley went 6-for-7 and scored twice in Wednesday's 14-inning loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The six hits were a career high for the 14th-year veteran. Utley also became the first Dodger with that many hits since Shawn Green did it in 2002. He entered the game on a 3-for-16 skid, but broke out of that on a day that included a pair of doubles -- the first time Utley has notched two doubles in a single game since August of last year. Wednesday's effort raised his average 15 points to .270, its highest mark since June 3.

Utley is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers continue to rest the 37-year-old Utley once at least, and the days off may become more frequent if Utley can't pick it up at the plate. He hit just .209/.292/.279 in June, which is not really acceptable for a leadoff hitter. Howie Kendrick will man second base and lead off Saturday.

Utley is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates, according to David Vassegh of AM 570 LA reports.

EDGE Analysis

Utley has played sparingly against left-handers this season, so it should not come as a big surprise that he is sitting out Monday against Pirates lefty Francisco Liriano. Howie Kendrick will man second base in Utley's place, and Enrique Hernandez will replace him atop the batting order.
