Reds | Brandon Phillips not ready for defense
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (forearm) took batting practice Tuesday, June 4, and he fielded ground balls on the field before the game against the Colorado Rockies. "I felt good swinging," Phillips said. "The more I kept on swinging, the more it kept it loose. It felt good, so that's why I'm going to do some more treatment right now, just keep it hot, keep it moving."
Fantasy Tip: Phillips is still having trouble playing defense, but he plans to be ready to pinch run or pinch hit if needed. Fantasy owners will want to keep Phillips reserved until he is able to return to the starting lineup and prove his health without any setbacks.
