    After going 2 for 17 in his last four games, Odubel Herrera finds himself in an unfamiliar spot on Friday night. 

    In the five-hole. 

    As the Phillies start their series against the Pirates, the centerfielder is batting fifth for just the second time this season. He also batted fifth on May 3 against the Cubs; he went 1 for 4 with an RBI double and two strikeouts. 

    For his career, Herrera has just eight at bats from the five-hole. He has two hits. 

    After DH'ing on Thursday, Maikel Franco is back at third base and slides up from seventh in the order to sixth. 

    Michael Saunders will sit on Friday night and is replaced by Daniel Nava, who will bat second.
