Reds | Brandon Phillips returns vs. Braves

Fri, 01 May 2015 12:56:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (illness) is starting at second base and hitting sixth against the Atlanta Braves Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) was a late scratch because of an illness Thursday, April 30, but FantasyScore players could have a nice target on their hands with him. Mike Foltynewicz is starting his first career game against the Reds Friday, and Phillips is on a nice 20-for-63 run over his last 15 games. Phillips is cheap, too.

Reds | Brandon Phillips a late scratch

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:54:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (illness) was a late scratch from the lineup against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, April 30. 2B Skip Schumaker will start at second base instead.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Phillips ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) from your lineups Thursday, and don't expect him to miss more than a game or two. Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 3-for-17 to start the season, so FantasyScore players should aim higher Thursday.

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 22:54:42 -0700

Reds | Cincy switches up lineup Monday

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:03:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart, who is hitting .303 on the season, was moved up to the second spot in the batting order Monday, April 27, with 2B Brandon Phillips dropping to sixth. 1B Joey Votto is now hitting third, and 3B Todd Frazier is in the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: The most notable move is for Cozart ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) jumping up to the top of the lineup. While facing a tough matchup in the improving Jimmy Nelson of the Milwaukee Brewers Monday night, the two-hole boosts Cozart's FantasyScore value at shortstop.

Reds | Brandon Phillips sitting vs. Brewers

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 12:13:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, April 20. 2B/OF Kristopher Negron is playing the keystone position and batting eighth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Phillips in daily contests Monday. He is off to a solid start this season with a .304 batting average (14-for-46), and there is not indication the day off is injury related. Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, although batting eight isn't an ideal spot in the lineup.
