HOUSTON -- Infielders Chase Utley and Wilson Valdez were not available for Monday's Phillies game against the Astros.
Valdez pulled his left hamstring late in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Brewers. Utley left Wednesday's game against Atlanta in the bottom of the eighth inning after being hit in the helmet by a pitch in the sixth. He has not played since.
"He's not available today," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said of Valdez. "[Utley] went to the doctor today. I hadn't heard anything more."
Manuel said he has no plans to make any personnel changes to compensate for the temporary loss of the two infielders.
