Reds | Brandon Phillips in lineup Saturday

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:52:16 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (biceps) is back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Randall Delgado Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is starting for the first time since Wednesday, Aug. 19, so FantasyScore owners may want to take a wait-and-see approach before using him in their lineups again. He is batting .319 this month with two home runs and five RBIs.

Reds | Brandon Phillips could return Saturday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 19:31:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price said 2B Brandon Phillips (biceps) is expected to be available against the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: If Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is unable to return to the starting lineup Saturday, expect INF Ivan De Jesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) to continue playing the keystone position for as long as he is out. However, De Jesus is batting just .179 during the month of August and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out again

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 12:18:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (biceps) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the keystone and hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye out for updates on Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap), as the injury isn't expected to be serious. De Jesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) checks out as a potential value play at FantasyScore, but it is worth noting De La Rosa ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) fares much better against right-handed batters.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out with injury

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:54:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (biceps) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 20. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the keystone and hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips' injury isn't serious, so he could return as soon as tomorrow night. De Jesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) doesn't do much offensively to make him attractive on FantasyScore. He's a low-end deep sleeper pick.

Reds | Brandon Phillips day to day

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 07:49:10 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (biceps) is day to day but could miss a little bit of time with inflammation in his right biceps tendon, according to manager Bryan Price.

Fantasy Tip: Ivan De Jesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .167 this month but could be an option to plug and play on FantasyScore.

Reds | Brandon Phillips departs game early

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 21:39:16 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (biceps) left the game Wednesday, Aug. 19, against the Kansas City Royals due to inflammation in his right biceps tendon.

Fantasy Tip: If Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is forced to miss time it would be Ivan DeJesus ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) seeing added at-bats.

Reds | Brandon Phillips batting cleanup

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:20:11 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is batting fourth against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is having a solid season, and he receives a boast in value hitting between the two best hitters for the Reds. He owns a respectable .297/.336/.406 slash line over his last 24 games, too. He is a potential lineup filler for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out Wednesday

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 09:41:59 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at second base and hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has decent numbers for a utility infielder (.276-4-15), but a lineup placement right in front of the pitcher in a stadium not friendly to hitters (Petco Park) doesn't sound promising on FantasyScore today.

Reds | Three-hit game for Brandon Phillips

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 22:10:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips went 3-for-6 with a stolen base Wednesday, Aug. 5, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has hit safely in six straight games, going 13-for-27 (.481) during the impressive stretch. FantasyScore players will find good value in 'DatDudeBP' while he is hot.

Reds | Career night for Brandon Phillips

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 20:54:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips went 4-for-5 with two home runs, two runs scored, two steals and a career-high seven RBI in a 15-5 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) had just two RBI the entire month entering Thursday's game and none in his last 11 games. Needless to say, you can't expect him to duplicate this type of production, and he remains a below average play at FantasyScore.
