Brandon Phillips: (Groin) Expects To Play Monday Staff

Update: Phillips (groin) expects to be in the lineup Monday against the Cardinals, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Recommendation: Phillips was removed from Sunday's game after feeling something grab in his groin as he stumbled around second base. "I’m OK," Phillips said after the game. "I was cool with staying in. But they wanted to be safe with the wet field. They would have felt bad if something happened to me." While Phillips plans on playing Monday, it's possible the coaching staff decides to take precaution and hold him out.
