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.

Phillips (knee) is back in the lineup Wednesday hitting cleanup against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

He missed two games with the knee ailment but is back to man the keystone for Wednesday's contest against Andrew Cashner and the Marlins. It would stand to reason that the Reds might want to get players like Dilson Herrera and Jose Peraza some valuable big league at-bats down the stretch. However, to this point the team has been unwilling to dial back Phillips' playing time, so he could very well continue to play almost every day over the rest of the season.

Phillips (quad) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran second baseman exited Tuesday's game with a quadriceps injury and manager Bryan Price will take the cautious route and hold Phillips out Wednesday. Getting the day off Wednesday will give Phillips an extra day of rest given that the Reds will be traveling Thursday. Tony Renda will fill in at second base Wednesday.

Phillips left Tuesday's game after suffering a quad injury, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

He went 0-for-3 with a walk prior to exiting late in the game. The Reds didn't expand on how serious the quad injury might be, but it was enough to knock him out of Tuesday's contest, getting replaced at second base by Ivan De Jesus. He should be considered day-to-day for now, and his status will be updated prior to Wednesday's game. Tony Renda is up as another potential option at second base if Phillips is forced to miss further time and the team could also recall Jose Peraza if it looks like Phillips is in line for an extended absence.

Phillips went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds keep acquiring potential replacements for Phillips, picking up Dilson Herrera in the Jay Bruce deal, but the 35-year-old just keeps on hitting. Phillips has now strung together five straight multi-hit games, pushing his slash line on the season up to .278/.314/.400 -- which would be his highest SLG since 2012 if he can keep it up.

Phillips went 2-for-4 with two solo homers in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

He continues to knock the cover off the ball, with Saturday's production representing his fourth consecutive multi-hit effort. The pair of round-trippers were Phillips' first homers since way back on May 7, when he closed out a four-game tear that saw him blast five bombs during that span. The 35-year-old is slashing .450/.476/.850 over his first 20 at-bats in August.
