Utley went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run in Thursday's road loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

It's nice for those fantasy owners who still employ Utley's services to see him turn out a good game like this, but he'd managed only a single hit in his prior 25 at-bats. At 37 years old, he's a shadow of his former self, but still sees pretty regular playing time -- almost entirely as the Dodgers' leadoff hitter despite his poor .317 OBP.

Utley is out of the lineup Saturday against the Marlins, SB Nation's Eric Stephen reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers will deploy Howie Kendrick at second base in order to fit Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson and Josh Reddick into the outfield. Utley is hitting just .237 since Aug. 1, but he has chipped in five homers over that stretch, which is a solid power output for a second baseman.

The Dodgers are sitting every left-handed position player except Corey Seager on Wednesday against southpaw Robbie Ray. To that end, Utley sits in favor of Charlie Culberson, who will hit eighth.

Utley is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader in Coors Field, the Los Angeles Times' Andy McCullough reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will take a seat with lefty Tyler Anderson on the hill for the Rockies, as he is hitting just .176 against southpaws this season. Look for him to be back manning the keystone in the nightcap with rookie righty Jeff Hoffman on the mound for the Rockies. Charlie Culberson will get the start at second base and hit eighth in the day game.

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

EDGE Analysis

Utley is hitting just .176 against lefties this season, so it should come as little surprise that he will be held out Tuesday against southpaw Tyler Anderson. Howie Kendrick will man the keystone in Utley's place, and Enrique Hernandez will replace him atop the order.

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

EDGE Analysis

Utley was able to play Thursday amid reports that he has been nursing a sore foot. That said, it looks as though manager Dave Roberts will take Utley's sore foot into account moving forward and give him the day off against lefty Matt Moore. Charlie Culberson will take over at second in place of Utley on Thursday.
