Description: Phillies second baseman Chase Utley will miss Tuesday's game due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Utley is pounding the ball this spring, batting .458 with a pair of homers through the first two series, but is just a .148 lifetime hitter against Tuesday's starter right-hander Kyle Lohse. Hopefully he won't miss more than a day or two.

Description: Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is just a .148 lifetime hitter against Brewers right-hander Kyle Lohse (4-for-27).
Insight: Utley is pounding the ball this spring, batting .458 with a pair of homers through the first two series. Fantasy owners would probably like to put him out there given the wind blowing out to right on Tuesday, but his lack of success against Lohse makes that a gamble.

Insight: Utley is no longer the 30-homer threat he used to be, but with a .268 average, 16 homers, 52 RBI, 62 runs, eight steals and an .812 OPS, the veteran is still a solid second-base option in all fantasy leagues.

Insight: He's batting .280 with 15 homers, 45 RBI, 54 runs and an .843 OPS. A few years ago it was Utley and Robinson Cano for the top spot at second, but now Utley is a simply low-end starter.

Insight: While not the fantasy star he once was, Utley is still a productive player at a weak fantasy position. He's batting .286 with 15 homers, 45 RBI, 54 runs and an .858 OPS. It just isn't likely to happen on Wednesday in an unfavorable matchup.

Insight: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports the deal includes multiple vesting options. The 34-year-old Utley's chronic knee issues haven't come into play this season (his one DL stint was for a strained oblique) and he has hit .275 with 15 homers, 42 RBI, 49 runs and an .841 OPS in 83 games.
