Reds | Brandon Phillips solid in return

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 23:10:12 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) went 1-for-3 in his return to the lineup Monday, July 18, against the Atlanta Braves. He missed the past two games due to a strained right calf. Phillips has now hit safely in seven straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips has raised his average from .249 to .261 as a result of the seven-game run. He remains a solid fantasy option despite the fact he hasn't launched a home run since May 7.

Reds | Brandon Phillips back in the lineup

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:09:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) is starting at second base and batting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Monday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips is having a disappointing season at a deep fantasy position with just 39 runs, six home runs, 34 RBI, five stolen bases and a .260/.299/.372 slash line. He's a fringe starter in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, but he likely won't move the needle enough for a contending virtual club.

Reds | Tucker Barnhart catching Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:59:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is back in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Sunday, July 17, batting eighth. 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) remains out of the lineup, with INF/OF Jose Peraza batting seventh and playing the keystone position.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is batting .393 with one home run and seven RBI through 28 July at-bats, making him worthy of consideration as a value play in daily fantasy contests. Peraza has some value in NL-only fantasy leagues because of his speed but isn't a great option in DFS. He is 13-for-13 through 34 career MLB games on stolen-base attempts.

Reds | Brandon Phillips absent from lineup

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 13:10:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) is not in the lineup Saturday, July 16, against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson. 2B Jose Peraza will fill in for Phillips at second base and hit seventh, while C Ramon Cabrera will replace C Tucker Barnhart behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Philips has seen his production drop off significantly this season as a result of dealing with foot, ankle and hand injuries. He is batting .260, hasn't homered since May 7 and registered only two stolen bases since the end of April, making him waiver-wire fodder in a number of leagues. Peraza's only desirable fantasy attribute at the moment is his speed and Cabrera doesn't provide much of anything as Barnhart's backup, making both players difficult to recommend in any format.

Reds | Brandon Phillips injures calf

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:05:31 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) exited against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, July 15, with a strained left calf and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: If the injury does keep Phillips out for a while, Jose Peraza could make a solid add in NL-only leagues if you need help in the stolen base department.

Reds | Broken hand can't slow Brandon Phillips

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 20:04:10 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (hand) went 2-for-4 with an RBI in a 4-2 loss to the Miami Marlins Saturday, July 9, in his first game since suffering a fractured hand.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips is going to attempt to play through the injury, and he made a good first impression. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him struggle at the plate, but continue to start him for now.

Reds | Brandon Phillips has fractured hand

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 06:25:37 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (hand) suffered a fractured hand during the game against the Miami Marlins Friday, July 8. The Reds will treat the injury like a bruise, which means it's a pain management issue instead of a healing issue at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips may not play until after the All-Star break so the Reds could see how his hand improves over the next week. Owners should keep an eye on the situation but probably can avoid him in daily fantasy leagues this weekend.
