With the Braves trying to avoid a sweep to the Phillies, Fredi Gonzalez has juggled his lineup slightly, dropping Jason Heyward to the No. 6 spot in the order behind catcher David Ross. Since June 2, Heyward is hitting just .225 against left-handed pitching. Dan Uggla and Brian McCann are both getting the day off on Sunday. Martin Prado will play second base with Reed Johnson taking over in left field.
