I wouldn't read into it deeper than what Torch said, which is that he needs to step up his defensive game. He's not Granlund, so he's going to have to work in his end to create the opportunities that will get the offense going.

Really the whole team with a couple exceptions is not playing well defensively and so many of these kids are adjusting. It's not that surprising.

I'd say it's better for Phillips to take his lumps now as a rookie pro in the minors than to spend 2-3 years trying to figure it out.
