The Phillies will have three nights off this week, with tonight's rainout - Monday, Wednesday, Thursday.  Even though the Phillies skipped fifth starter Roberto Hernandez in the rotation, the Phillies will make one more adjustment.   Kyle Kendrick, originally tabbed to start tonight's game against the Mets, will start on Monday instead.

The move means that when the Phillies take on the Nationals this weekend at Citizens Bank Park, the Nationals will face the Phillies' top three starters.   Cliff Lee will pitch the series opener on Friday, as he was scheduled to.  Then, A.J. Burnett follows in game two.  Cole Hamels will pitch the Sunday matinee to close out the series.
