Brandon Phillips

Reds Gold Glove 2B Brandon Phillips left Saturday's game against the Indians after taking a groundball off his right hand. The Reds were forced to shuffle their infield, and wound up playing Ramon Hernandez at third base for the first time in his career. Phillips went 2-for-4 in the game. He is questionable for the series finale with the Indians on Sunday. -cbs

"Brandon Phillips said X-rays found a hairline fracture in the tip of his right thumb.
The injury resulted from a groundball off his hand on Saturday. Phillips will sit out for now, but he thinks he'll be able to play through the injury for the most part. "I told them I don't want to go on the DL," Phillips said. "I feel like I can play with it." The Reds have Jerry Hairston Jr. at second base today."



Great.... this is from rotoworld

How big of an impact could a hairline fracture ON THE TIP OF A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE'S THUMB have on his power-stroke swing?

I could see him have a hard time fielding groundballs, but IMO the effect of such injury shouldn't take that big a toll on his overall offensive numbers...right?

Someone please tell me I am right as I'll be a Phillips owner May 27 via trade lol

I would strongly tend to agree with you that this shouldnt effect Phillips performance but as far as eventually going on the DL I think its always a possibility. They dont make ball players like they used to. These days a player goes on the 15 day for sneezing incorrectly, inflamed colon, anxiety disorder you name it.
