Brandon Phillips went 1-for-3 at the plate with a two-run homer, two walks and an additional two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Braves.
Phillips was brought up by the Red Sox for depth and will not play every day which will hurt his fantasy value. If there is an injury or two and the veteran infielder can get more playing time he could be worth adding in deeper fantasy leagues.
Brandon Phillips will be called up by the Red Sox on Tuesday, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.
Phillips was hitting .302 in 38 games for Triple-A Pawtucket. The veteran infielder will be on the team to provide depth and will not be playing every day which means he does not have any fantasy value.
Brandon Phillips went 2-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Astros.
Since being acquired by the Angels, Phillips has struggled at the plate hitting .238. The 36-year-old second baseman is going to play every day as the team fights for a playoff spot and is batting leadoff. Deeper league fantasy owners needing a second baseman should consider Phillips.
Brandon Phillips was traded from the Braves to the Angels on Thursday as the Angels look to remain in the playoff hunt in September.
Phillips has had a solid season with the Braves and will look to give the Angels an added veteran presence for a playoff run along with Justin Upton. Phillips will likely return to his natural position of second base with the Angels.
