Utley is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers will keep both Logan Forsythe and Justin Turner in the lineup at second and third base, respectively, so Utley will be relegated to the bench. With one hit in 14 at-bats over the last five games, Utley seems to be losing steam from his hot finish to May and could start riding the pine on a more regular basis.

Utley is not in the Dodgers' Thursday lineup against the Indians, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The vet has enjoyed the occasional surprisingly great game but overall hasn't given the Dodgers much of a reason to keep him as a starting option. Chris Taylor has a better shot than Utley of keeping at least consistent part-time duty following the recent returns of Justin Turner and Joc Pederson.

Utley batted leadoff and went 1-for-2 with a home run, three walks, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Sunday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran received another start Sunday, this time replacing Logan Forsythe at the keystone in an effort to keep his hot bat in the lineup. It is worth noting that Adrian Gonzalez left the game with a back issue, potentially opening up more playing time for Utley in the infield. With a .349/.481/.674 slash line over his last 15 games, fantasy owners should continue to deploy the 38-year-old until he is no longer seeing regular playing time or his bat cools off.

Utley batted leadoff and went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

With both Logan Forsythe and Justin Turner back from the disabled list, Utley was expected to return to the bench to serve as a backup infielder. The role demotion had to wait an extra day after the club decided to give Turner a rest day Saturday. It is poor timing to have the entire Dodger infield healthy, as the 38-year-old seemed to turn back the clock over his previous 15 games, batting .341 with three home runs and eight RBI while filling in at second base. Manager Dave Roberts may be forced to get Utley's bat in the lineup a few times a week going forward, but his fantasy value takes a big hit if he is not seeing regular playing time.

Utley is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Utley has collected just one hit over his first 10 at-bats against the Brewers this series and will head to the bench Sunday for a day of rest. Austin Barnes will take over at second base in his stead.

Utley went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The 38-year-old has turned back the clock recently, slashing .293/.388/.512 over his last 46 plate appearances. He has been seeing regular playing time at second base against righties while Justin Turner (hamstring) remains sidelined. The Dodgers' regular third baseman hasn't embarked on a rehab assignment yet, so Utley should continue to provide value for fantasy owners in the interim.

Utley is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Utley has been a regular at the keystone of late, making seven starts in a row. His numbers against opposing starter Jon Lester aren't great, however, as Utley is just 2-for-12 without an extra-base hit. As a result, Enrique Hernandez will get the nod at second base.

Utley went 2-for-4 with three RBI during Saturday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has a run and four RBI through the first two games of the series against Chicago. However, with a .664 OPS for the campaign, Utley isn't moving the fantasy needle in the majority of seasonal leagues. He also should see a decrease in playing time once the Dodgers are back to full health.

Utley went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-0 win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Utley's second homer of the season opened the scoring for the Dodgers in the third, and came on the heels of his solo shot on Thursday against the Cardinals. The veteran infielder has been much better in May after a dreadful April, as he's now slashing .278/.365/.500 with two homers and nine RBI over 60 plate appearances during the month after hitting just .122 with one RBI in April

Utley is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dave Roberts has stacked his lineup with mostly right-handed bats to counter lefty Justin Nicolino. With Adrian Gonzalez back on the active roster, Utley will likely see most of his time at second base moving forward, perhaps as part of a platoon with Chris Taylor. Utley has made just three career starts at third base, so it's hard to imagine he will be a regular replacement for Justin Turner (hamstring) at the hot corner.
