The Phillies postponed last night’s game against the Marlins due of rain.
So right-handers Vince Velasquez ((above, 0-2, 7.20 ERA) and Jeremy Hellickson (3-0, 1.88 ERA) will pitch tonight and tomorrow afternoon against the Marlins, respectively. They will face Wei-Yin Chen (2-0, 3.94 ERA) and Edinson Volquez (0-2, 4.82 ERA).
The Phillies open a three-game series Friday night against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Right-handers Zach Eflin (0-0, 2.25 ERA) and Jerad Eickhoff (0-1, 2.55 ERA) will pitch Friday and Saturday, respectively. Rookie right-hander Nick Pivetta is expected to make his big league debut Sunday afternoon against the Dodgers. Pivetta is replacing right-hander Aaron Nola in the rotation.
Nola is on the 10-day disabled list with a strained lower back.
