Tonight's Lineup: Taylor Featherston Starts at 2B, Odubel Herrera Sits Again

With the Phillies facing Padres left-hander Christian Friedrich, Pete Mackanin has stuffed his lineup with righties.

Taylor Featherston, Tyler Goeddel and Jimmy Paredes will all receive starts Friday night when the Phillies play in San Diego at 10:40 on CSN (see game notes).

Featherston, a recent call-up from Triple A Lehigh Valley, will play second base and bat seventh, while Cesar Hernandez shifts to shorstop and Freddy Galvis sits. Goeddel hits sixth and is in left field with Paredes in the eight-hole and right field.

Phillies All-Star Odubel Herrera sits for the second straight game. He's hitting just .236 against left-handed pitching compared to .301 against righties.

No lefties are in the lineup, as Hernandez and Paredes are switch-hitters.
