Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg has announced his post-all-star break rotation.

A.J. Burnett will start the first game back Friday in Atlanta. Cole Hamels and Kyle Kendrick will pitch the next two days in Atlanta.

Cliff Lee, making his final rehab start Monday in Clearwater, will start July 21 at home against San Francisco and Roberto Hernandez starts the next night.

Burnett, Hamels and Kendrick will have a full week’s rest since they were the three starters this weekend. Lee, who has been sidelined with a left elbow strain, will be making his first Major League start since May 18.
