|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(1:30 pm ET) Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips will not receive the opportunity Monday to turn his six-game hitting streak into a seven-game hitting streak unless he comes off the bench. He is not in the lineup.
Ivan De Jesus is taking his place at second and Billy Hamilton in the leadoff spot.
Phillips is batting .310 (9 for 29) during his hot stretch and owns a .287/.321/.382 slash line on the season.
Reds 2B Brandon Phillips hits homer but injures hands in loss
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/28/15) Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips hit his fifth home run of the season in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Mets in Game 2 of a doubleheader.
Phillips, hitting leadoff, finished the game 1 for 3. It's his second home run and fourth RBI over his past 10 games. Phillips now holds a slash line of .288/.321/.385 for the season.
However, Phillips was unable to finish the second game of the doubleheader. Late in the game, he left due to injuries to both hands.
"It was kind of a combination," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "He had a problem with the left hand on a swing. I think he was going to be able to play through that. But then on his right hand when he went back in to try and tag [Curtis] Granderson at second, he got his hand jammed on that play. Right now, both hands are probably on ice."

|(6/25/15) Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips was back in the lineup for Thursday's game at Pittsburgh, reports Fox Sports Ohio.

Phillips will face A.J. Burnett on Thursday, who he is 10 for 33 against with one home run in his career. Over his last seven games, Phillips is hitting .188 with no extra-base hits or RBI.
The Reds are the underdogs (+160) at Pittsburgh on Thursday.
Reds 2B Brandon Phillips scratched from Wednesday's lineup
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/24/15) Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Pirates after he was slotted to hit leadoff in the original lineup. Phillips jammed his thumb during Tuesday's game, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. It was the same thumb he had surgery on last season.
"He iced it last night and we hoped it would be better. He woke up, it was stiff and sore," manager Bryan Price said before Wednesday's game. "He'll get more treatment throughout the day. But it will not allow him to start the game and we'll see where he is by the time we get to game time if he's a useable pinch-hitter."
Ivan De Jesus came off the bench to start at second base in place of Phillips, who had two hits Tuesday. However, he is batting just .175 (7 for 40) in his last 11 games (nine starts).
|2014 summary: Through the first three months of the Reds season, Brandon Phillips appeared to be on course to continue the slow, steady decline he embarked upon two years prior. Then Phillips had surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament in July, and when he returned in mid-August, his production fell off a cliff. In 35 post-DL games, Phillips hit .250 with one home run, 11 RBI and one stolen base. In his previous eight seasons as a Red, Phillips had never failed to hit at least 17 home runs, but he finished 2014 with only eight home runs.|
Playing time status: Phillips' bat may be in decline, but the 33-year-old still provides Gold Glove-caliber defense. With no competitors for playing time, a healthy Phillips should provide close-to-everyday at-bats.
2015 outlook: Phillips should rebound from his abysmal second half, but his days of stealing bases and flirting with 20 homers are likely done. Having fallen back to the pack among second basemen, Phillips is now a late-round option for standard mixed league owners.
