    CLEARWATER, Fla. - Wednesday night's Phillies lineup against the Yankees in Tampa is the closest yet to what could be their opening day lineup. 

    Still no Odubel Herrera (hamstring) or Cesar Hernandez (strained hip flexor), though manager Gabe Kapler said Sunday that both are progressing well and could play within 5 to 10 days. 

    Maikel Franco, who appeared to tweak his hip last Friday night going for a ball while being shifted over toward shortstop, is back in the lineup for the first time as the designated hitter. 

    Here's the lineup for the 6:35 p.m. game, which is not televised:

    1. Andrew McCutchen, LF
    2. Jean Segura, SS
    3. Bryce Harper, RF
    4. Rhys Hoskins, 1B
    5. J.T. Realmuto, C
    6. Maikel Franco, DH
    7. Aaron Altherr, CF
    8. Sean Rodriguez, 2B
    9. Scott Kingery, 3B

    Zach Eflin pitches for the Phillies. Masahiro Tanaka pitches for the Yankees.
