Brandon Phillips To Be First Red Sox Player To Wear Uniform Number "Zero"

Well, Brandon Phillips sure knows how to make an immediate impact on Red Sox Nation. The newly-called-up, 37-year-old three-time All-Star will wear the uniform number "0"—the first player to do so in franchise history. Over his 16-year MLB career, Phillips has hit .275 with 210 HRs, 949 RBIs, and 209 stolen bases. The Red Sox will be his fifth MLB team—having previously played for the Reds, Indians, Braves and Angels. He is also a four-time Gold Glove winner. Phillips joins Jayson Tatum of the Celtics as a zero jersey-wearer in Boston.
