SERIES PREVIEW

Phillies (39-46) vs Braves (28-56)

Citizens Bank Park

1:05 PM EDT on CSN

Jeremy Hellickson (6-6) 4.06 ERA

PHILLIES: Keep an eye on Hellickson, who could be an interesting trade chip before the Aug. 1 Trade Deadline. He strengthened his case Friday, allowing one run in six innings against the defending world champion Royals.

Tyrell Jenkins (0-1) 5.79 ERA

BRAVES: Jenkins is a former first-round pick who will be making his first career start in place of Julio Teheran, who was scratched with a thigh injury. The 23-year-old had a 2.96 ERA in nine starts at Triple-A Gwinnett.
