Brandon Phillips has hilarious quote about avoiding disabled list
He may be a 35-year-old playing on one of the worst teams in baseball, but Brandon Phillips hasn’t lost his sense of humor.
On Thursday morning, the Atlanta Braves second baseman, who is currently battling a groin strain, dropped a funny quote about avoiding the disabled list.
“I’m not going on the DL, that’s not going to happen,” said Phillips, per David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I’m going to wrap it up, I’m going to do something. I’m going to be like Chipotle burrito, I’m wrapping that thing up. I’m not going on the DL, I promise you that.”
Phillips has actually gotten off to a hot start in his first season as a Brave, slashing .352/.387/.507 with two home runs, nine RBIs, and five stolen bases through 19 games. But he should probably proceed with caution as Chipotle hasn’t always been kind to his fellow MLBers.
