Phillips is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Tigers. Phillips went 2-for-3 with a run scored Saturday but will park on the bench against Detroit left-hander Daniel Norris. Jorge Bonifacio will start in right field as Salvador Perez serves as designated hitter.
Phillips is not starting Tuesday against the Pirates. Phillips missed 10 starts with a shoulder issue before returning to the lineup as the designated hitter Sunday. He apparently remains unable to take the field. Jorge Bonifacio will be the Royals' right fielder in the Pirates' National League park.
Phillips is not in the lineup Monday against the Pirates. Phillips returned to the lineup for the first time since Sept. 4 Sunday after missing time with a shoulder injury, going 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. He'll head back to the bench for Monday's series opener as the Royals look to ease him back into action, with Jorge Bonifacio covering right field in his stead.
Phillips (shoulder) went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts Sunday in the Royals' 9-6 loss to the Twins. Phillips entered the starting lineup for the first time since Sept. 4 after the shoulder injury limited him to one appearance off the bench in the Royals' 10 games in between. Now that he's seemingly back to full strength, Phillips should occupy an everyday role in center field for the Royals over the final two weeks, which could result in the likes of Brian Goodwin, Rosell Herrera and Alcides Escobar losing out on playing time.
Phillips (shoulder) is back in the lineup but not on the field Sunday against the Twins, batting eighth as the designated hitter. Phillips missed 10 straight starts with a shoulder issue after colliding with the outfield wall back on Sept. 4. It remains to be seen when he'll be back in the outfield, but it's a positive sign to see him back in the lineup.
