9/4/16 - Max FB: 67, FB: 65-67, SL: 58-59
5-foot-11, 180-pound, RHP threw exclusively out of the stretch, comes at hitters from a submarine angle they aren’t used to seeing, produces some run and sink on his fastball that is consistent with his arm angle, threw strikes but was a little less consistent than we have seen him in the past, quick leg lift jumps toward the plate in line and produces a balanced finish a majority of the time.  Fastball showed sink and run into the zone, slider swept across the zone with 10/4 action.

6/14/16 - Max FB: 65, FB: 64-65, CB: 56-57,
5'11, 180-pound, RHP uses a submarine release that produces some run and sink on his fastball that you would probably only see from someone throwing from that angle, once again didn’t get back up to his previous high of a 73 mph, but was able to throw both of his pitches for strikes.  Even though Phillips’ deception can be valuable, he will need to get that velocity back up to where it’s been in the past.  Does like to compete.

1/31/16 - Max FB: 64, FB: 63-64, CB: 54-58, CH: 58-60,
5-foot-11, 180-pound submarine style RHP did not show a much velocity as he has at previous events (69-73 mph previously), seemed to be more comfortable working from the stretch, fastball shows good arm-side run, shows the ability to throw the curveball for strikes, changeup is solid and shows good fading action and deception off the fastball. Phillips could bring value to a college program out of the bullpen given his unconventional arm slot but would like to see the velocity come back up.
2/7/15 - The 5-foot-11 175-pound RHP has a strong frame, Phillips has a sidearm to submarine delivery with many of his pitches showing good movement, his fastball sits from 69-72mph topping out at 73mph with some arm-side run and sink, his curveball 59-61mph has a 10/4 gradual movement and he does a good job of locating it at the bottom of the zone,  changeup 66-69mph shows some late sinking action, ability to throw strikes from his arm slot makes him an interesting prospect.
1/17/15 - Phillips a 5-foot-11, 175-pound RHP with a strong build, uses shorter arm action through mostly a sidearm slot, easy effort delivery, fastball showed some late sink at 69-72 mph topping at 73, does a good job of not getting under curveball from the sidearm slot, curveball was down in the strike zone at  59-61 mph with late action, shows some feel for 64-66 mph changeup with some arm-side run and sink, interesting mound prospect with his arm slot.
