"I still have to produce," Duda said. "If I don't produce, I won't play. If I don’t get the job done, someone else will."
Duda will likely continue to sit against most southpaws as the team looks to get at-bats for Josh Satin. Duda has hit .256/.333/.465 with three home runs and eight RBI in 43 at-bats.
Minor is scheduled to make his final rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett this Saturday as he recovers from a sore shoulder. Santana is on the mound for the Braves Saturday. The team doesn't play Thursday, so one of the two pitchers is going to have a full week off between starts.
Posey took a foul tip off his shoulder Thursday and was limited to pinch-hitting Friday, but he'll resume his regular role Saturday after giving the injury a little bit of rest. He has hit .255/.339/.436 with three home runs and eight RBI in 55 at-bats.
"I've kind of had that in mind against lefties, to have Rajai and Ian [Kinsler] at the top," Ausmus said.
Davis made Ausmus look good Saturday, as he reached base three times in a 5-2 win. He went 1 for 3 with a pair of walks, though he did not score in the game, and was caught stealing once.
Davis' career line against lefties (.295/.354/.426) is much better than what he has produced against right-handed pitching (.257/.299/.354.)
Headley will be making his first start since Tuesday after dealing with a bicep injury this week. He has hit .176/.222/.275 with one home run and four RBI in 51 at-bats.
Hamels was shut down early in camp due to shoulder inflammation, but he's ready to make his long-anticipated return to the Phillies rotation after throwing seven innings in his final rehab start Thursday. He'll be looking to improve from last season's numbers after going 8-14 with a 3.60 ERA and 202:50 K:BB ratio in 220 innings.
Moran has been sidelined by a minor knee injury thus far. He's one of the top prospects in the organization after being selected sixth overall last year.
Furcal began his rehab assignment with Jupiter Monday and will move up a level a week later. He's progressing from a hamstring injury as he works towards playing his first major-league game since 2012.
Jennings is hitting .264 with one home run and five RBI in 53 at-bats to start the season.
