  1. CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. (98 wRC+ this season)
  2. DH Jorge Soler (92)
  3. 2B Luis Arraez (255)
  4. LF Bryan De La Cruz (68)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Sánchez and Stallings in, Garrett Cooper and Nick Fortes out; Soler switches from RF to DH

Additional Notes: Another missed start for Avisaíl García (left hamstring soreness), but he remains on the active roster...Cabrera is walking batters more frequently than any other MLB starter, while the Phillies draw walks at the fourth-lowest rate. Something’s gotta give...Watch out for the possible major league debut of right-hander George Soriano, who was called up from Triple-A on Monday.
