Andy Phillips lives to fight another day

The Reds put Jolbert Cabrera on the DL to make room for rookie pitcher Daryl Thompson. No one was called up to be backup shortstop. Instead, Andy Phillips will be the emergency shortshop.

Oh, boy. I don't think he's played SS since he was in college. But it's not like the Reds have anything left down on the farm.

Mark Feinsand had news about Andy:

I had a chance to chat with Andy Phillips before the game, one of my all-time favorite guys. Andy has dealt with so many bad things in recent years – his wife’s illness, his mother’s car accident – that I was thrilled to hear that he and his wife, Bethany, are expecting their first child in September. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Congratulations, Andy and Bethany.
