Estimated 6-foot-2, 190-pound athletic frame. The right-hander throws from a high ¾ slot with a long, quick arm swing and an athletic delivery. His fastball was 93-95 mph early on and settled in later at 91-93 mph. Commanded the ball low in the zone and was able to elevate it for swing and misses. Flashed a slider at 77-78 mph with 10-4 shape.

8/2018 - Made two appearances and logged four innings at Area Code Games. Allowed two hits, a walk and hit batter while striking out four. Fastball was 89-91 with some arm-side movement. Curveball was slurvy at 75-78. Mixed in a changeup at 80. Upright delivery, landing slightly closed. Some head snap.

Jupiter 2017 - At 6-foot-1, 170-pounds, he has a wiry-strong build with room for continued physical development. He has considerable deception in his delivery, utilizing a funky hip coil, working across his body with cross-fire action. It’s a low-effort delivery, and the ball comes out the hand with ease. His fastball topped at 89 mph, working mostly in the 86-87 range throughout his four innings. He also threw an effective 73-75 mph slurve. Phillips allowed two hits, struck out four and walked two in his outing.

10.1.16 - 6-foot-1, 170-pound lean frame. Works from a high-¾ slot with long, clean arm action. His fastball ranged from 84-86 mph in the first four innings. Fastball has some arm-side run and sink. He showed good command moving the fastball around the zone and locating on both sides of the plate. Did a good job controlling the running game posting 1.1-1.2 home-to-the-plate times out of the stretch. In the fifth inning he was still sitting 83 mph with his fastball. Threw one slider at 77 mph.

2020 DRAFT: Strong and athletically built at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds, the right-hander throws from a high slot with a quick arm swing. He pitches with an athletic tempo in his delivery, remaining upright through leg lift before throwing his glove towards the batter with a high front side, creating some deception and a tough angle. His fastball sits 94-95 mph, and touches 98. Phillips will show arm-side run and, at times, control to both sides of the plate. He also throws an 83-86 mph slider. It's firm and has tight spin with late 10/4 action. After showing potential first round stuff last fall, Phillips did not perform as well as expected this spring due to control inconsistencies, missing armside and up too often; he got stuck closing himself off and throwing across his body. He ended the abbreviated season with 27 strikeouts and 15 walks in 25.2 IP and is now considered more of a second to early third round talent. As a projectable freshman who can return with full eligibility at a perennial power JUCO, Phillips has a lot of leverage in the draft with unknown signability at this point.

2/14/2020 Estimated 6-foot-1, 190 pounds. The right-hander throws from a high ¾ slot with a quick arm swing. His fastball was sitting 93-94 mph touching 95 mph with arm-side run and good command to both sides of the plate. He also throws an 83-85 mph slider, flashing sharp 10/4 action.

11/1/19: A top prospect and part of a strong Texas prep crop in 2019, Phillips is right back in the mix for Day One this June. The 6-foot-1 righty ran his fastball up to 97 this fall and showed he can spin a power slider/cutter at 84-86. He pitches with an athletic tempo in his delivery, remaining upright through leg lift before throwing his glove at the batter with a high front side, creating some deception and a tough angle on his fastball. The breaking ball is firm and has tight spin with late action.

10/14/19: 6-foot-1 athletic RHP that has ran his fastball up to 97 this fall as well as show he can spin a power slider/ cutter at 84-86 mph. Pitches with an athletic tempo in his delivery, remains very upright through his leg lift, then throws his glove at you with a  high front side creating some deception and a tough angle on his fastball. The breaking ball is firm and has tight spin with late action to it. (Haig)
