PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Chase Utley has the flu and isn't at the ballpark for the Phillies' home opener against Milwaukee on Tuesday.

The five-time All-Star second baseman was replaced in the lineup by rookie Cesar Hernandez. Carlos Ruiz was in Utley's No. 3 spot in the lineup.

Utley is batting .458 (11 for 24) with three doubles, two homers and six RBIs.
