Expect to see the Phillies rotate whom they use as the designated hitter some once games are played starting July 24 against the Marlins.
Manager Joe Girardi has said he could use the DH as a way to give some guys such as Bryce Harper, Andrew McCutchen, J.T. Realmuto and Rhys Hoskins a break, a day off from playing the field.
Jay Bruce (above) should get plenty of at-bats at DH, too, and likely will be the most regularly used hitter in that spot.
We never got a glimpse of Girardi’s potential full regular-season lineup during spring training in February and March because McCutchen hadn’t been cleared for game action.
