Reds | Brandon Phillips remains out

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:40:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (toe) is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 29. 2B Skip Schumaker is scheduled to start at second base for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has not been in the starting lineup for three straight games, so owners should monitor the situation. Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .242 this month, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Reds | Brandon Phillips still out

Wed, 27 May 2015 07:10:29 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (toe) is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, May 27. 2B Skip Schumaker is batting leadoff and starting at the keystone Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. There was speculation he might be able to play Wednesday, so seasonal owners shouldn't anticipate a lengthy absence. While Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is cheap and in a prime lineup spot, he is nothing more than a low-price flier for FantasyScore contests.

Reds | Brandon Phillips dealing with turf toe

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:53:19 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (toe) had his turf toe issue flare up on him again Tuesday, May 26, which is why he wasn't in the starting lineup. "He aggravated it in Cleveland, but until you actually see it on the field you are not going to hear much about it from Brandon," said manager Bryan Price. "He is not going to alert anybody about it. He'll just go out and play and when it becomes noticeable we take the lead to make sure he gets adequate treatment and not continue to aggravate it."

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could return tomorrow, but check the team's starting lineup before running with him at FantasyScore. Kris Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), who started for Phillips Tuesday, isn't worth your time in daily games.

Tue, 26 May 2015 12:12:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is not starting Tuesday, May 26, against the Colorado Rockies. 2B Kris Negron is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) appears to be out due to a night off so remove him accordingly. As for Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), he is 6-for-40 in the past month so don't bother saving space for him.

Reds | Brandon Phillips hitting leadoff Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:56:46 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is hitting leadoff against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday, May 22. SS Zack Cozart drops down a spot into the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .368 (21-for-57) with a home run and eight RBI in the month of May and hasn't had trouble hitting righties this year (.304/.349/.373) with both of his home runs. Carrasco has good stuff but has allowed right-handers to hit .310 (31-for-100) with two home runs off him this year. Phillips isn't a bad bet at FantasyScore while he's swinging a hot stick, and a move to the top of the lineup could maximize his value.

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:48:01 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is hitting second in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been hot in the month of May (.346/.424/.404) with a home run and seven RBI in 52 at-bats for the Reds. He's also 4-for-6 with a double and home run in his career against Guthrie. Phillips could be a nice value pick in daily games this evening.

Thu, 14 May 2015 12:30:11 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Schumaker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has seven hits in 32 at-bats this season as a bench player for Cincy, so he should be ignored at FantasyScore tonight.

Reds | Brandon Phillips leaves game

Tue, 12 May 2015 22:38:35 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (toe) left the game Tuesday, May 12, against the Atlanta Braves in the eighth inning due to a sore big left toe.

Fantasy Tip: If Phillips cannot play, Skip Schumaker ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) is likely to fill in at second base and he could be a solid low-end FantasyScore option.
