Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (thumb) has a ligament tear in his left thumb, and he will have surgery Friday, July 11.
Fantasy Tip: To put the recovery timetable in perspective, Bryce Harper missed 57 games and almost two months with a torn ligament. Phillips' season could be over. Skip Schumaker and Ramon Santiago will see additional playing time. Schumaker is an option in NL-only leagues.

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (knee) underwent an MRI exam on his left knee Friday, May 16, and he's likely to go on the disabled list, according to sources. It is the same knee that he had surgery on back in 2012.
Fantasy Tip: This could be a serious injury for Votto that could keep him out well beyond the 15-day DL stint. Plan for the worst. In Votto's absence, perhaps the Reds will slide Todd Frazier over to first base and insert Ramon Santiago in at the hot corner. Skip Schumaker is another option to fill in wherever needed at the corner infield spots. Santiago and Schumaker are only mildly attractive options in NL-only leagues with increased playing time.

The Cincinnati Reds could break camp without a shortstop to back up SS Zack Cozart. INF Ramon Santiago is a candidate as a backup shortstop, but he is no lock to make the team, nor is INF Chris Nelson. 3B Todd Frazier was drafted as a shortstop, and he could be used to fill in. OF Billy Hamilton has also played 312 minor league games at shortstop, and manager Bryan Price acknowledged Hamilton could see time there if needed.

X-rays were negative and manager Jim Leyland hopes he can return to action Sunday, Aug. 25. INF Ramon Santiago will get the start at shortstop Saturday.
