Tonight's Lineup: Odubel Herrera Gets Night Off, Tommy Joseph Returns After Game-winning Homer

Pete Mackanin's lineup will look a little different on Saturday night against Rockies lefty Tyler Anderson.

Odubel Herrera will get the night off. The Phillies' lone All-Star representative is mired in a small slump, going hitless so far in Colorado in 10 at bats. Peter Bourjos will get a rare start in the leadoff spot and play center field. Bourjos only led off one other time this season, going 1 for 3 with a walk in a win over Madison Bumgarner the Giants. 

Tommy Joseph, who belted a three-run, pinch-hit homer to give the Phils a win on Friday, is back in the starting lineup at first base. After going 2 for 4 with a homer and two RBIs on Thursday, Ryan Howard went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in the win.

Cody Asche has also cooled off, going hitless in his last three starts. Jimmy Paredes gets the start in right and Tyler Goeddel will get the nod in left. Paredes hasn't started a game since June 25. Both players have struggled without consistent playing time. Goeddel has just one hit in his last 17 at bats and Paredes is just 3 of his last 13.
