DENVER -- Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips will continue his Minor League rehab assignment at Class A Dayton on Sunday. Phillips played games for Triple-A Louisville on Friday and Saturday and was 0-for-5 with a walk in the two games.

"He and I did a little back and forth this morning," Reds manager Bryan Price said before Phillips played his second game on Saturday. "He was really excited about how good he felt. I don't know if he expected to feel as good as he did. He had a lot of action defensively and three at-bats. He came out of it feeling pretty good."

Phillips is going to Dayton since the Dragons are playing at home. Louisville was slated to begin a road trip Sunday at Indianapolis. Price wasn't ready to say whether Phillips could be activated for Monday's series opener at St. Louis.

"Before we make any commitments, we feel like we have to give him this weekend and evaluate him from that point on," Price said.
