Tonight's Lineup: Odubel Herrera Bats 5th, Aaron Altherr 7th Vs. Teheran

Odubel Herrera is back in the Phillies' starting lineup and bats fifth tonight against Braves right-hander Julio Teheran.

Herrera was double-switched out of Tuesday's game against the Astros after bat-flipping a flyout and not running out a dropped third strike. He did not start on Wednesday, but the punishment appears to have lasted all of one game.

Aaron Altherr, who is 1 for 12 with seven strikeouts against Teheran (see game notes), bats seventh.

Howie Kendrick is out of the lineup after being hit by a pitch on the wrist Wednesday. He's day to day.

Cameron Rupp, who's batted .375 with four homers, eight RBIs and 10 runs scored over his last 12 starts, is behind the plate to catch Jeremy Hellickson in what could be Hellickson's final start with the Phillies.
