Angels' Brandon Phillips: Could return Sunday

The Angels are hoping that Phillips (back) will be able to return to the lineup Sunday, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Manager Mike Scioscia downplayed the issue, saying Phillips is merely day-to-day with lower-back tightness. Phillips appeared to injure himself on a swing during Friday's game. Cliff Pennington is starting at second base Saturday with Mike Trout leading off.
