Tonight's lineup: Andrew Knapp returns; J.P. Crawford at shortstop

For the first time since Aug. 3, Andrew Knapp starts for the Phillies behind the plate.

Knapp catches Mark Leiter Jr. and bats seventh in tonight's series opener against the Oakland Athletics. The switch-hitting catcher missed six weeks with a fractured hand.

Knapp has gotten on base pretty consistently during his rookie season, hitting .253/.362/.373 in 188 plate appearances. 

Freddy Galvis has the night off, allowing for J.P. Crawford to start at shortstop for the second time since his call-up. Of Crawford's eight starts to this point, five have been at third base, two were at second base and one was at short.
