Aided by a quick turnaround from Wednesday night, Charlie Manuel's lineup shuffle continues.

One night after trying Chase Utley second in the order, it will be Kevin Frandsen in the two-hole when Cliff Lee and the Phillies face right-hander James McDonald and the Pirates this afternoon at 1:05.

Frandsen is filling in at third base for Michael Young, who has the day off.

Ben Revere also has the afternoon off and will be replaced in center by Ezequiel Carrera.

Other changes from Wednesday night include Erik Kratz for Humberto Quintero behind the plate, and Laynce Nix for John Mayberry in the outfield. Nix will start in right as Dom Brown moves to left.

Here's how they'll face McDonald in order:

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
2. Kevin Frandsen, 3B
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Laynce Nix, RF
6. Dom Brown, LF
7. Eziquiel Carerra, CF
8. Erik Kratz, C
9. Cliff Lee, P
