OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Cincinnati Reds have placed second baseman Brandon Phillips on the paternity list, and he will miss the team's two-game series in Oakland before rejoining the club Friday at Texas.
Phillips returned to Cincinnati as the club made a brief stop in the Bay Area. The Reds reinstated outfielder Chris Heisey from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday after a six-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville. He had been on the DL since April 29 with an injured right hamstring. Heisey was in the lineup batting sixth as the designated hitter against the A's.
