    • Angels' Brandon Phillips: Absent from Sunday lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Phillips is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Phillips will sit out Sunday while Cliff Pennington starts at second base in the Angels' season finale. Prior to being acquired by the Angels, Phillips began the season with the Braves. Between the two, the 36-year-old hit a respectable .285/.319/.416.

    • Angels' Brandon Phillips: Out of lineup Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Phillips is not in the lineup against the White Sox on Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Phillips will head to the bench in favor of Kaleb Cowart following the club's elimination from playoff contention. Since joining the Angels at the beginning of September, Phillips has gone 24-for-94 (.255 average) with two home runs and eight RBI.

    • Phillips went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the White Sox. The veteran second baseman has thrived while batting fifth for his new club, going 4-for-12 with a double, two homers and four RBI over his last three games. It's unclear whether Phillips' new lineup placement is the main cause for his recent hot streak, or if it's simply just a coincidence. Either way, he is providing enough pop to help fantasy owners during the final week of the regular season.

    • Phillips went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Sunday's 7-5 win over the Astros. It was the veteran second baseman's 12th homer of the season, but just his first since joining the Angels at the beginning of September. Phillips was slashing .256/.266/.321 over his previous 18 games, so manager Mike Scioscia moved him from the leadoff spot to fifth in the order Sunday. The lineup shift paid immediate dividends for the 36-year-old, and considering it coincided with the Angels snapping their six-game losing streak, this configuration will likely stick for the remainder of the season.
