In Monday night’s series opener, Vince Velasquez (0-0, 6.57 ERA, 1.95 WHIP) will make his third start of the season for the Phillies. The Phillies will not have the services of reliever Jose Alvarado who will begin a two-game suspension. Bryce Harper is also not in the lineup, and it seems as if his wrist injury was re-aggravated on Sunday.
Velasquez be opposed by righty Adrian Houser (2-2, 3.65 ERA, 1.42 WHIP) for the Brewers, who will see the return of Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain from the 10-day Injured List.
Game time is 7:05 Eastern and will feature a rare over-the-air broadcast on PHL17.
