Freddy Galvis starts at second alongside Jimmy Rollins when the Phillies host the Orioles at Bright House Field. First pitch is 1:07 p.m.
Beerleaguer: Galvis, one of the bright spots for the Phillies this spring, tastes his first action as a starting second baseman as the Phils are once again without the services of Chase Utley. Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer is on top of the Utley situation, writing that he's not only been held out of game action, but that he's rarely been seen taking infield practice. Hopefully, the delayed stars by Utley - which the Phillies maintain is by design - and Ryan Howard prove to be a blessing in disguise and that the Phils can hold down the fort until June-ish. At the very least, it opens the door to see what Galvis and others are made of. The 22-year-old prospect is hitting .357 with a pair of doubles in 15 plate appearances.
Lineup: Rollins SS, Polanco, 3B, Victorino CF, Thome DH, Pence RF, Wigginton 1B, Mayberry LF, Galvis SS, Gosewisch C, Blanton P. John Mayberry leads the Phillies in plate appearances (17). Scott Elarton is expected to follow Joe Blanton, who was sharp in his debut.
