Reds' Billy Hamilton back in lineup, Devin Mesoraco still out
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers, while catcher Devin Mesoraco remains sidelined.
Hamilton wasn't in the lineup Sunday after suffering a groin strain the previous day, but he's ready to return to action in the team's series opener against the Brewers.
Mesoraco hasn't played since April 12 due to a left hip impingement. Manager Bryan Price said that he had to go home due to a family issue, but he's expected to be back with the team Tuesday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Second baseman Brandon Phillips is also getting a day off from starting, with the team slotting Kris Negron into the eighth spot.
The Reds are underdogs (+104) Monday against the Brewers.

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips leaves Tuesday's game

|(4/14/15) Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips left Tuesday's game against the Cubs with an undisclosed injury after attempting to reach second base, the team announced.
Phillips tried to reach second evasively around Starlin Castro, but the two collided and Phillips fell on top of him. Phillips stayed in for another half inning, but was replaced by Skip Schumaker. Phillips went 1 for 2 with a run scored before exiting.
Reds 2B Brandon Phillips has big game in loss to Cubs
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips went 4 for 5 in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Cubs in 10 innings.
All four of Phillips' hits were singles. He didn't have any RBI but he did score two runs. Phillips is now batting .286 for the season.
|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.
