Pedro Florimon (B) Headshot

Florimon had his contract selected from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Todd Zolecki of reports.

Florimon will take the roster spot of Nick Pivetta, who was sent to the minors following his start Wednesday. The 30-year-old hasn't seen any major-league action this season, but he owns a .265/.347/.410 slash line through 90 games with the IronPigs. Florimon has hit just .200/.261/.297 across parts of six big-league seasons, so he'll likely primarily play off the bench during what should be a brief stint with the Phillies.

Odubel Herrera (L) Headshot

Herrera (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants, Todd Zolecki of reports.

Herrera will remain on the bench for a third straight game as he continues to nurse a sore hamstring. Nick Williams is starting in center field for him Thursday, opening up a spot for Hyun Soo Kim to start in right field. While Herrera said his hamstring was feeling better, he remains questionable for this weekend. Pedro Florimon was summoned to the big club to offer another bat off the bench in case Herrera can't go this weekend, which could indicate the team thinks he may not require a full 10-day stay on the DL.
