Tonight's lineup: Odubel Herrera sits with left hamstring injury

Tonight's lineup: Odubel Herrera sits with left hamstring injury

Odubel Herrera's hitting streak will have to be put on hold.

The Phillies' centerfielder has hit safely in 17 straight games, the longest active run in the majors, but he will be out of the lineup Tuesday night against the Padres with a left hamstring injury.

Herrera went 2 for 5 in Monday night's 7-4 loss to San Diego, hitting a single and his NL-leading 36th double. The occurrence and severity of the injury are uncertain (see story).

Over his 17-game hitting streak, Herrera is slashing .379/.431/.636 with three homers, two triples, four doubles and 10 RBIs.

To replace his production tonight, the Phillies will slide Nick Williams to center field and give Hyun Soo Kim a start in right field. Williams will hit third, while Maikel Franco moves up to sixth, followed by Kim and Jorge Alfaro, who starts behind the plate.

In other roster news, the Phillies placed outfielder Daniel Nava (lower back strain) on the 10-day disabled list and recalled outfielder Cameron Perkins from Triple A Lehigh Valley.

Right-hander Mark Leiter Jr. takes the mound tonight for the Phillies and opposes Padres righty Dinelson Lamet in Game 2 of this three-game series at Petco Park (see story).

1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B

Today's Lineup: Nick Williams in clean-up spot, Daniel Nava starts at first

Today's Lineup: Nick Williams in clean-up spot, Daniel Nava starts at first

There's no questioning the impact Nick Williams has made in the Phillies' lineup. In 29 games thus far in his blooming Phillies career, the 23-year-old outfielder is making his mark with a .300 average, five homers, seven doubles, three triples and 22 RBIs.

That body of work has led Pete Mackanin to etch Williams' name back into the cleanup spot for today's series finale with the Rockies at Coors Field in Denver. It will mark the third time this season Williams' will bat cleanup.

Williams went 0 for 4 in last night's loss but had three hits in each of his previous two games — the opener against the Rockies and the finale against the Angels. Three of those six hits were doubles.

Over the last 10 games, Williams, who will start in right field today, is batting .286 with a homer, a triple, three doubles and seven RBIs.

Daniel Nava, who recorded three hits and three RBIs in last night's defeat, will remain in the lineup. Nava, who's hitting .311 with four home runs and 20 RBIs in 68 games with the Phils this season, starts at first base today in place of Tommy Joseph. Primarily an outfielder, Nava has 43 games of experience as a first baseman. He has just a single appearance at first for the Phils this year. He'll bat third today.

Hyun Soo Kim is back in the lineup in left, batting seventh. Cameron Rupp is also back, batting eighth and catching Aaron Nola.

Speaking of Nola, he'll look to continue the roll he's been on recently. In his last eight starts, Nola has gone just 5-3, but he's posted a 1.66 ERA and struck out 63 batters. He has clearly cemented himself as the Phillies' No. 1 starter. It'll be a tall task at hitter-friendly Coors Field against a Rockies team that is second in the league with a .276 batting average and third in the league with 5.32 runs scored per game. Today marks Nola's first start against the Rockies in his career.

He'll be opposed by Rockies righty Jeff Hoffman, who comes in sporting a 6-3 record and 5.38 ERA in 13 starts this season. He's coming off a win over the Mets last week when he tossed six innings of two-run ball. He schooled the Phils earlier this season at Citizens Bank Park, hurling seven innings of three-hit, one-run ball in a win on May 22.

1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B

Tonight's lineup: Nava activated from DL, starts in RF; Altherr, Williams out

Tonight's lineup: Nava activated from DL, starts in RF; Altherr, Williams out

The Phillies got an outfielder back on Wednesday night, as Daniel Nava (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list.

Nava, a potential August trade candidate, will jump right into action by hitting seventh and playing right field in Game 2 of a three-game road series against the Angels.

Both Aaron Altherr and Nick Williams are not in the lineup. Altherr's hamstring, which had the outfielder on the 10-day DL last month, is bothering him, while Nick Williams is under the weather, manager Pete Mackanin said pregame. Williams is available to play tonight, if needed.

So the Phillies' outfield will be Nava, Hyun Soo Kim in left and Odubel Herrera in center. Andrew Knapp will get another start, but as the Phillies' designated hitter, as Cameron Rupp enters the lineup to start at catcher. And in other roster news, reliever Edubray Ramos was recalled from Triple A Lehigh Valley.

Jake Thompson takes the mound for the Phillies and opposes right-hander JC Ramirez. For more on tonight's game, read Corey Seidman's game notes here (see story).
