Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere has been dropped from the leadoff spot to seventh, SS Jimmy Rollins has moved into the top spot, and INF Freddy Galvis is batting second on Thursday, April 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Manager Charlie Manuel is hoping to jump-start an offense that has scored only nine runs in its last five games. "I want to see if I can relax him a little bit and get him going," Manuel said. "To me, our lineup is never set. It's not that he's not going to be back in the leadoff spot some time or hitting second. … I think he has been pressing too much."
Galvis is filling in for OF Domonic Brown (back) in left field. The idea of having switch hitters in the top two positions appealed to Manuel. Galvis (.333) entered play on Thursday as one of only two Phils with averages above .300. The other is 3B Michael Young (.346).
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should've expected the possibility of shakeups like this. Hopefully, the moves help to get Revere going. He should still opportunities to run -- as long as he gets on base -- since Manuel didn't drop to the eighth spot. It's not yet clear how serious Brown's injury is or whether the Phils would continue to play Galvin in left if Brown missed extended time. Delmon Young (ankle) may factor in here in the next couple of weeks.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is in the leadoff spot for the team's opening day game Monday, April 1, instead of SS Jimmy Rollins. "We'll see how long I give it," manager Charlie Manuel said. "I come to the ballpark to win. I don't have to put a time on it or nothing. I can't tell you if it's going to be five days, 10 days, two days. We'll see. I just felt like that's what I wanted to see. That's how I wanted to put it together." Rollins is hitting behind Revere in the No. 2 hole.
