The Phillies’ Wednesday Lineup vs. Florida State
Baseball is almost back.
The Phillies play an exhibition tomorrow afternoon against Florida State at Bright House Field, and Charlie Manuel ran through his lineup card following today’s workout at Carpenter Complex:
- Jimmy Rollins, SS.
- Juan Pierre, DH.
- Shane Victorino, CF.
- Hunter Pence, RF.
- Ty Wigginton, 3B.
- Domonic Brown, LF.
- John Mayberry Jr., 1B.
- Michael Martinez, 2B.
- Tuffy Gosewisch, C.
Manuel said Chase Utley and Placido Polanco will not play, which is part of the Phillies’ plan to lighten their workload during Spring Training. Catchers Carlos Ruiz and Brian Schneider also are not expected to play. Manuel said Jim Thome is expected to get at least one at-bat, but he will not play in the field.
Otherwise, Manuel said he will try to get every other position player in the game.
Right-hander Austin Hyatt will start for the Phillies.
