As first reported by the Wilmington News-Journal's David Hale, this is the Phillies' line-p tonight against former lefty J.A. Happ, who has had a rough go of it this season.

One interesting thing is that Shane Victorino is not in the lineup, despite the fact that he has crushed left-handed pitching this season. There was no indication yesterday that he was hurting, and the Phillies said it is just a day off, nothing more.
