Freddy Galvis, who has played second base, third base, shortstop and left field this season, is making another start at the hot corner on Saturday.

Galvis is starting at third and batting second as Michael Young gets the night off.

The switch-hitting Galvis will bat from the left side with right-hander Jose Fernandez on the mound for the Marlins (see game notes). Galvis has fared much better hitting lefty compared to righty in the early going this season. The 23-year-old is 7 for 23 (.304) against righties compared to 1 for 13 (.077) against lefties.

Galvis, like the rest of his teammates, has a limited past against the rookie Fernandez. The Miami righty saw the Phillies on April 13 and pitched six shutout innings. He gave up just two hits and two walks -- one of each came to Galvis.

Delmon Young is back in right field for the third straight night.

Here's the full lineup for the Phillies:

1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
2. Freddy Galvis, 3B
3. Chase Utley, 2B
4. Ryan Howard, 1B
5. Delmon Young, RF
6. Domonic Brown, LF
7. Carlos Ruiz, C
8. Ben Revere, CF
9. Cole Hamels, P
