Brandon Phillips News Archive
Phillips has been hitting in the second spot in the lineup so far this spring and projects to hit there during the season, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "One of his strengths is that he's hit all over the lineup and he's been efficient. You get into the whole on-base question and so on and so forth. I think with this particular club, where he is right now in the two-hole is where I see him right now," manager Bryan Price said.
Phillips (thumb) was able to play Thursday with no lingering issues.
Phillips appeared to jam his left thumb on a slide into second base during Wednesday's Cactus League opener but stayed in the game.
Phillips wasn't speaking to reporters when he reported to spring training Wednesday.
