Reds | Brandon Phillips update

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 13:48:13 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) is expected to begin his rehab assignment before the minor-league season ends, according to manager Bryan Price.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips is recovering and rehabbing from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb. The injury could hinder his hitting, and more specifically his power. Phillips is worth stashing in deep mixed leagues and NL-only formats, if you have the roster flexibility to do so.

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 06:42:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) has been cleared to begin swinging a bat. "He's swinging in the cage off a tee, so it's baby steps," trainer Paul Lessard said. "But it's good baby steps." Manager Bryan Price said Phillips is ahead of his six-week timetable.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips could be a week or two away from a rehab assignment.

Reds | Brandon Phillips getting closer

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 14:53:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) has been fielding balls and making throws, and he said he expects to be back sooner rather than later. However, there isn't a date for when he'll test his thumb while swinging a bat, but manager Bryan Price doesn't think it's far off. Phillips will then likely go on a rehab assignment. He'll see a hand doctor Thursday, Aug. 7, to determine the next step.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips' return will certainly be welcomed by the offensively challenged Reds' offense of late. He'll immediately return to his everyday starting duties at the keystone, and he should return to your lineups right away when he's back, too.

Reds | Brandon Phillips takes grounders

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 20:17:39 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) joined the team on the road trip Friday, Aug. 1, against the Miami Marlins. He fielded and took ground balls Thursday, July 31. However, there is no timetable for him to swing a bat. "I don't think he's close, but I don't know what close is whether it's five days or two weeks, I'm not sure," manager Bryan Price said.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners need to be patient until there is a more definitive timetable from the club. Keep him reserved in all leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in at least a full game or two without any setbacks.
