Chase Utley (sore rib cage) is out again tonight as the Phillies conclude their three-game series with the Marlins in South Florida. Utley could be DL-bound, as Jim Salisbury explains.

Freddy Galvis gets another start at second base. Galvis, who is hitting .345 in May, has started four straight games.

With Utley out, Ben Revere and Michael Young occupy the second and third spots in the order, respectively. Revere has had three hits out of the two-hole in two of his last three starts to raise his batting line to a season-high .260/.302/.298. For the first time all season, his OPS is .600.

The Phils will need Delmon Young to continue to produce as he did Tuesday night, when he went 2 for 4 with a homer, double and two RBIs.
