Yeah....it's early August with about 55 games remaining.....if he took 30 seconds to circle the bases 4 days ago and needs a pinch runner still.....I don't want to see him in a game for a week. Don't mostly heal....heal. We don't want Phillips at 75% for the rest of the year....let's sit him a bit and have him 95-100% from Sept and on.
