The Braves hottest player was replaced in the middle of Thursday night’s game. With the Braves leading 6-1, it appeared it could have just been a move for rest, but the team confirmed that Phillips left the game because of hamstring tightness and is day-to-day.

Thankfully, this does not look too serious, even though hamstring injuries can take longer than expected to heal. Look for Dansby Swanson and Johan Camargo to man the middle going forward until Phillips is able to return.
