MLB: Cincinnati Reds' Brandon Phillips Recharged After Paternity Leave

Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips feels recharged after going on paternity leave last week. 

MLB.com's Jeremy Warnemuende says Phillips considers missing two games last week did him a lot of good. He missed four games in early June due to a left forearm contusion. When he returned to the Reds lineup, he wasn't exactly lighting it up. In the next 17 games, he batted only .169 (12-for-71) - a slump heading into the mid-season mark. 

Warnemuende notes Phillips has had one hit in each of his last three games since coming back from paternity leave. His stats during that stretch include going 4-for-12 with a walk and an RBI. 

Phillips confirmed he's starting to feel better

"I'm not the type of person to make excuses, but I was really hurting. Hopefully I can get back to the same person I was before. I'm starting to feel better, and it feels good."

The Reds placed Phillips on paternity leave on June 24 without any comment. Major League Baseball's paternity leave policy states concerned players must miss at least one game after the birth of their child. The number of missed games will amount to no more than three. 

The paternity leave policy was implemented at the beginning of the 2011 MLB season. 

For the current 2013 regular season, Phillips has so far amassed 82 hits, 11 home runs and 61 RBIs on a .272 average and .323 OBP, per ESPN stats.

CINCINNATI, Ohio — The Reds extended general manager Walt Jocketty’s contract through the 2016 season on Saturday, giving him a chance to try to dig the franchise out of a disappointing year. Jocketty was promoted to general manger in 2008. They reached the playoffs three times in four years under manager Dusty Baker, who was fired after the Reds lost the wild card game to Pittsburgh last year. The Reds had a lot of injuries and fared far worse this season under manager ...
