Angels' Brandon Phillips: Out Saturday with side tightness
Phillips (side) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Phillips appeared to injure himself on a swing Friday, and manager Mike Scioscia later confirmed to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register that Phillips experienced some tightness in his side. He was to be reevaluated Saturday, but the team has yet to provide any further updates. Mike Trout will lead off in Phillips' absence as Cliff Pennington mans second base and bats ninth.
