CLEARWATER, Fla. -- It's a semi double dip here this morning. At 10 a.m., the Phillies will play a B game against the Blue Jays at Bright House Field. Jamie Moyer will make his spring debut in that contest. Greg Dobbs is the only semi-regular position player playing in the B game.

Then, the majority of the Phillies' regulars will take a short bus trip over to Dunedin for a 1 p.m. game against Toronto. Cole Hamels will start that game. Here's the lineup for that game:

1. Jimmy Rollins 6
2. Placido Polanco  5
3. Chase Utley 4
4. Ryan Howard 3
5. Jayson Werth 8
6. Raul Ibanez 7
7. Domonic Brown 9
8. Ross Gload DH
9. Brian Schneider 2

TODAY'S PITCHERS

Hamels will start and be relieved by J.C. Ramirez, Ryan Vogelsong and Antonio Bastardo. Toronto will start Brandon Morrow.

Moyer will start the B game and be relieved by Chad Durbin, Ryan Madson and Scott Mathieson.

VICTORINO STILL OUT

Shane Victorino will not play again today and is not on the travel roster for Saturday's game in Bradenton against the Pirates. Werth will play center field today and top prospect Domonic Brown gets a crack in the big league lineup, starting in right.

When asked about Victorino on Wednesday, Charlie Manuel said he didn't know when he would return -- only when the trainers told him so.

CC ON DOC

This quote from Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia was left over in my notebook from yesterday. He was asked about Roy Halladay's transition from the American League to the National League -- a transition Sabathia made with Milwaukee two years ago.

"I think it will be a pretty easy transition for him," Sabathia said. "I think he'll like facing the 7, 8, 9 guys in the National League. The type of pitcher he is, I expect him to probably be better than he was with the Blue Jays."
