Red Sox Sign Veteran Brandon Phillips To A Minor League Contract
The Boston Red Sox have signed 16-year veteran Brandon Phillips to a minor-league deal. Phillips spent last season between the Braves and Angles, with a batting average of .285, 13 home runs, and 60 RBIs. Phillips has not played this season, but he was brought in to fill some depth at second base.
I forgot that Brandon Phillips still played baseball. However, his last year numbers aren’t terrible for a 16-year vet who plays second. I just don’t see Phillps getting that much playing time for the Sox until later in the season. He hasn’t played all season, and it is already almost halfway over. Luckily for him, he does not have much talent in front of him.
Eduardo Nunez who is the current second basemen is not doing well at all. He is batting .253 with an on-base percentage of .284. Those are some ugly numbers. Then you have Holt who is not an everyday player for the Sox. So we shall see if Phillips makes an appearance at second base in Boston any time soon.
