Phillips expected to play
The Reds are currently on the field for their off day workout at PNC Park. Among the players out there are 2B Brandon Phillips.
After taking a foul ball off of his leg Saturday, Phillips had some nasty swelling above his left shin. That swelling has subsided. Reds manager Dusty Baker not only pronounced Phillips good to go for Tuesday’s Wild Card game vs. the Pirates, he provided the quote of the day.
“I expect Brandon to be in there,” Baker said. “I saw him yesterday. I told him, ‘he wasn’t limping, he was pimping’ …not literally.”
*As for the Wild Card roster, the Reds will not set or announce it until Tuesday morning.
