Jimmy Rollins will get his first day off of the season when the Phillies wrap up their three-game series with the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

Freddy Galvis, who cracked the Phils' starting lineup for the first time this season on Saturday, will shift over from third base to shortstop to fill in for Rollins. Michael Young will be back at third after sitting out Saturday's 2-1 loss.

Erik Kratz has also been given off for the series finale and Humberto Quintero will catch for Roy Halladay, who will make his third start of the season.

As pointed out by Corey Seidman, Halladay struggles a bit more during the day (see game notes). Since coming to the Phillies, Halladay’s opponents’ batting average is 21 points higher during the day (.260) than at night (.239).

Halladay will be opposed by Kevin Slowy. The only time the Phils saw Slowey, when he was a member of the Twins, they went 7 for 10 off him and scored seven runs in 1 2/3 innings.

Here's the full lineup:

1) Ben Revere, CF
2) Freddy Galvis, SS
3) Chase Utley, 2B
4) Ryan Howard, 1B
5) Michael Young, 3B
6) Domonic Brown, LF
7) John Mayberry, RF
8) Humberto Quintero, C
9) Roy Halladay, P
