News: GM Walt Jocketty revised Phillips' (thumb) timeline for a return while speaking with's Jim Bowden on Sunday, stating that he expects the second baseman to return from the disabled list in approximately five weeks. Impact: The news shaves about two weeks off the 8-to-12-week timetable that Phillips was initially given after he was diagnosed with a torn left thumb ligament July 10. Still, the knowledge that Phillips will likely return in early September in a best-case scenario makes it tough to justify holding him in single-season leagues. He hadn't helped his cause prior to suffering the injury by batting .272 with seven homers and 40 RBI, well off the pace of his 2013 totals of 18 and 103, respectively.(RotoWire, )
