Against righties, Votto has a career wOBA of .414 while Phillips had a wOBA of .315. Thats a difference of 52 runs or 5 WAR over 600 PAs..... Against righties, Phillips is really miscast at the cleanup bat that splits the lefties.
Even with less this two outs? That means that Bruce will likely bat with another runner on base. With two outs, definitely, though.
