Andy Phillips starts tonight

Poor Andy's barely seen the light of day in Cincinnati. Honestly, it's worse than it was for Bubba with the Yankees. Which is pretty bad, since the Reds are a NL team.

He did get a single last night, raising his average to a respectable .286. (It's only his second hit of the season, so it's a very small sample size indeed.)

Tonight, he's starting at 3B and batting sixth. The usual third baseman, Edwin Elpidio Encarnacion, was hit by a pitch last night (which is why Andy got in the game last night - though the game was a blowout, so he might have been put in anyway). Encarnacion has been struggling a bit, so who knows. If Andy does well, he could get more playing time.
