Tony Gywnn Jr. will start for the second time as a Phillies tonight against the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park and the first time in center field. Playing in place of Ben Revere, Gwynn will bat lead-off.
Revere has a sore rib, but says it is nothing serious.
The Phillies are looking to snap a four-game losing streak and it won’t be easy in facing last year’s Rookie of the Year Jose Fernandez (2-0. 0.71).
In other moves righthander Seth Rosin has cleared waivers and was returned to the Phillies. He will report to Lehigh Valley.
Freddy Galvis has rejoined the team from the 15-day DL and the Phillies optioned Cesar Hernandez to Reading.
