Hot corner platoon features Frandsen in finale
ATLANTA -- The Phillies' third-base carousel continued Sunday.

Kevin Frandsen, who was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, made his first start with the Phillies at third base in the series finale against the Braves at Turner Field. Mike Fontenot started there Friday and Ty Wigginton started there Saturday. The Phillies are trying to find somebody to man the position while Placido Polanco is on the disabled list with lower back inflammation.

In 197 big league games, Frandsen has played 52 at third base. He has a .958 fielding percentage while manning the hot corner and has committed just five errors in 119 chances.
