SPUTTERING PHILLIES SHAKE UP LINE-UP AFTER 4-6 START

By Sam Bush

The Phillies popgun offense and 4-6 start isn’t the end of the world.

But manager Joe Girardi is shaking things up.

Kyle Schwarber has been bumped from the leadoff spot down to fifth. J.T. Realmuto will move from the two hole down to one.

Girardi didn’t like how easy it was for teams to bring in a southpaw to face both Schwarber and Bryce Harper with only Realmuto in between, so Girardi will now use both Nick Castellanos and Rhys Hoskins to separate his lefties.
