The Phillies will encounter an old friend, J.A. Happ, Monday night. They will do it with Freddy Galvis and Jayson Nix manning the left side of the infield.

Shortstop Jimmy Rollins is not in the lineup one day after he appeared to tweak something when he fielded a fifth-inning grounder. Cameras showed Rollins conferring with head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan between innings. Manager Ryne Sandberg said there was no injury.

"He felt a little something," Sandberg said, "but he's fine."

Instead, Galvis will start at shortstop and bat second. He is 1 for 31 to start the season.
