Reds | Night off for Brandon Phillips

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 13:38:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22. 2B Ivan De Jesus is playing second base and batting eighth against Cubs SP Dallas Beeler Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday night. The veteran went just 1-for-5 in Game 1, which moves him to 9-for-23 over his past five contests. He is a low-end second baseman in the majority of formats. De Jesus ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests.

Reds | Brandon Phillips returns

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:07:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hand) returned to the lineup Wednesday, July 1, hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: BP ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has hit safely in seven straight and faces Trevor May and his 4.62 ERA. Phillips is a solid midrange second baseman on FantasyScore.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out again

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:51:55 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hand) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, June 30. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the keystone and hitting second against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had two hits last night but doesn't own much power and remains mainly a source of salary cap relief for the rest of your FantasyScore lineup.

Reds | Brandon Phillips not a DL candidate

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:50:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb, hands) is dealing with injuries to both of his hands, and he aggravated a left thumb injuring swinging Sunday, June 28. There is nothing to indicate that Phillips is in danger of landing on the disabled list, although he's not playing Monday, June 29. Phillips is riding a six-game hitting streak and is batting .300 (71-for-237) since April 12. He tested his hands before the game Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has five home runs, 30 RBI and also 11 stolen bases in 2015 and has been a very nice value play the past couple of months. Ivan De Jesus ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a desperation source of salary cap relief for daily gamers.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out of the lineup

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:07:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (hand) is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the keystone and batting second against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Phillips ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all formats Monday. His frequent injuries are becoming a real damper on what has been a bounce-back campaign from the veteran. De Jesus ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has played sparingly, and he is currently sporting a 6-for-34 run with 12 strikeouts and a .458 OPS. FantasyScore players shouldn't view De Jesus as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief Monday.

Reds | Brandon Phillips leading off

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:38:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) is playing second base and batting first against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is a risky FantasyScore play Thursday. Burnett has limited opponents, and there is a chance Phillips is playing at less than 100%, given he sat out Wednesday, June 24, after aggravating his surgically repaired thumb.

Reds | Brandon Phillips expected back

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:44:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) is expected to be in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) aggravated his surgically repaired thumb Wednesday, June 24, so it isn't out of the question to leave him on the bench in seasonal leagues and avoid him at FantasyScore. He is having a nice bounce-back season, but the nagging injuries are taking their toll. Check back for an official update on his status before locking him into any lineups Thursday.

Reds | Brandon Phillips scratched Wednesday

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:01:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) was scratched from the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. 2B Ivan De Jesus is now starting at the keystone and hitting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips aggravated his surgically repaired thumb while being jammed Tuesday night. Keep an eye on his progress in the coming days. De Jesus ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a candidate to avoid everywhere against Cole.

Reds | Brandon Phillips back Sunday

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 05:00:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (groin) was back in the starting lineup Sunday, June 14, against the Chicago Cubs. He went 1-for-5 with an RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) showed few effects, if any, of being out for a while, so he should be safe to play once again in FantasyScore lineups.

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 15:50:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (groin) is taking batting practice Saturday, June 13, and he could be available off the bench against the Chicago Cubs and RHP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips won't be an option on FantasyScore for a while, but he at least seems to be nearing a return.
