Phillips went 2-for-4 in the Reds 5-0 loss to the Cubs. His two singles raised his batting average to .324.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran second basemen is off to a good start in 2015. Over the last four games, he's gone 9-for-14 keep him plugged in your lineups while he's hot.

The last season Phillips was truly healthy was 2012, in which he finished 13th in MVP voting. With a more balanced lineup in 2015 than in 2014, a healthy 'Dat Dude' is poised to put up slightly above average numbers like he has proven he can. (Source: FanSided)

Fantasy Impact: Votto's ability to stay healthy and guys like Billy Hamilton getting on base is essential to Phillips' success. He's not going to be hitting over .300 or hitting tons of HRs. His value is mostly in defense at this point in his career, but he will certainly be able to provide consistent RBI if Votto and company get on base. Another low risk high reward candidate from the Reds.
