I have doubts that this is the real Phillips we are seeing at the moment but... They have a very injury prone team: Jr, Freel, Kearns, etc... As long as he hits, he should be playing 2B.

Here is a pretty good write up on Phillips:

I was a little skeptical after his hot first week....but after seeing him play several games now, I am thinking this might actually be the real Brandon Phillips. Sure, he may not continue hitting at this rate (ie, .350+) but he has great speed and is on a team that likes to steal. This fact alone should give him fantasy value throughout the year. The power he provides is an added bonus. Freel has chosen the wrong time to slump, as it appears he will be the odd man out now that Griffey is about to return.
