Reds manager Dusty Baker said Brandon Phillips will likely bat second this season.
"If we started right now. That's way down the line," Baker said. "I've thought about different lineups. I'm sure I will get a lot of help." Phillips has switched mostly between the leadoff spot and the middle of the order for the Reds the past few seasons, but he'll settle in behind new leadoff man Shin-Soo Choo in 2013.
