Phillip Evans was in the original lineup in right field batting fifth, but he was scratched due to left hamstring tightness.
Tyler Anderson gets the start today. He will be followed in some order by Quinn Priester, Chris Stratton, Nick Mears, Edgar Santana, James Marvel and Shea Spitzbarth. Sean Poppen (who is celebrating his birthday today) was originally listed as an option for today, so he might be available, or he possibly pitched a sim game instead.
