Herrera went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Dodgers. Herrera was stranded on third base after leading off the fourth inning with a double, but was able to drive in a run with a bases-loaded walk before coming around to score on a Rhys Hoskins double in the seventh. While he's still two home runs short of last season's 15, Herrera now has 40 doubles in 127 games after producing only 21 in 159 games last year.
Herrera is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics. After making five consecutive starts, Herrera will head to the bench ahead of the team's matchup with lefty Sean Manaea and the A's. Aaron Altherr will take over in center field, with Rhys Hoskins drawing the start in left and Tommy Joseph filling in at first base.
Herrera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports. Following Saturday's disappointing outing in which Herrera went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts, the Phillies will move Aaron Altherr over to center field and deploy Rhys Hoskins in left. With the team having Monday off, look for Herrera to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.
Herrera received a scheduled day off Wednesday as part of his recovery from a hamstring strain, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports. The Phillies are proceeding cautiously with Herrera to avoid any setbacks. He is scheduled to play the next two games and then get another day off Saturday. The 25-year-old is expected to play regularly after that.
Herrera is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports. Herrera was reinstated from the disabled list before Monday's contest, but the Phillies will give him a little more time before slotting him back into the lineup. Once he's fully healthy, he's expected to reclaim an everyday role in the Phillies' lineup. In the meantime, Nick Williams is starting in center field for him.
