The Indians will start giving Cord Phelps some playing time at first base.

The Tribe likes Phelps' bat, so they're trying to make him more versatile in preparation for a possible bench spot. Traditionally a second baseman, Phelps belted his second homer over the spring Wednesday and is hitting .333.

Cord Phelps smashed a two-run homer, his first of the season, in a loss against the Royals on Saturday.

His towering drive off Will Smith in the fifth inning got the Indians on the board, tying the game at 2-2. Phelps has seen very limited duty this season, going 2-for-28 (.111) with a homer and three RBI. With Jason Kipnis creating a roadblock at the second base position, it appears unlikely that Phelps will make major contributions in the 2013 season either.
