Baker decided to flip Mat Latos and Tony Cingrani in the starting rotation to give Cingrani extra rest as the rookie deals with shoulder soreness.
"We moved the rotation around because we wanted to get Cingrani some extra days," the manager said. "With his delivery and the way he throws, there is a little bit of soreness in his shoulder. His delivery in unorthodox, so if he gets out of whack a little bit, there can be some soreness. We just wanted to get him some extra days between starts."
Latos will now start the series finale in Miami on Thursday, with Cingrani taking the mound on Friday in Philadelphia.
