Phillips left Tuesday's game with a left hand injury and X-rays were negative, the Cincinnati Enquirer's C. Trent Rosecrans reports.

EDGE Analysis

He went 0-for-3 with an RBI and two strikeouts before exiting. The fact that X-rays were negative suggests there's a chance that he could return before the end of the season. Ivan De Jesus, Tony Renda and Hernan Iribarren are options to fill in at the keystone while Phillips is out.

Phillips went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

He continues to swing a hot bat, and Phillips has followed up his .351/.378/.521 August with an even better .382/.400/.559 line through his first 34 at-bats in September. The 35-year-old clearly has plenty left in the tank.

Phillips (foot) is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Phillips has been listed in the initial lineups for both of the Reds' last two games, only to be scratched hours before game time due to a sore foot. While it's encouraging to see that he's tentatively in line to start at second base and bat fifth in the order, it's worthwhile to check back on the Reds' lineup closer to the 1:10 ET start time just to ensure Phillips is still playing.

Updating a previous report, Phillips (foot) has been scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore left foot.

EDGE Analysis

Phillips fouled a ball off his foot in Friday's contest, which led to him getting scratched Saturday. Although he was in Sunday's initial lineup, the Reds will take it easy with the veteran and decide to rest him another day. The recently-added Hernan Iribarren will man the keystone in his stead.

Phillips went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a stolen base and scored a run in Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Phillips renaissance continued Wednesday, as he picked up a pair of doubles to bring his season total to 26, the most he's had since the 2012 campaign. The second baseman is on pace to score more runs than he has since 2013 while finishing with his highest on-base percentage in four seasons. Phillips has been on fire since the All-Star break, going 35-for-96 (.365) with 10 doubles, 16 RBI and 15 runs scored. He's also picked up his game on the bases, swiping four bags since the Midsummer Classic after notching just five steals in the first half of the year.
