Manager Ned Yost said Phillips (shoulder) is available to pinch run Wednesday against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Phillips is on the bench for a seventh straight game with a shoulder injury he suffered after crashing into the outfield fence, but he was able to take swings Tuesday and has been cleared for pinch-running duties. It's unclear when he'll be ready to rejoin the starting nine, but this is certainly a step in the right direction for the young outfielder.
