2024 Player Rankins

Our first look of Phillips came at the Underclass Games in June where he excelled, both in the workout and in-game against players two years older than him. A right-handed hitter, he has barely begun to fill out his 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame. As he adds strength, the power potential in his swing and arm might be at the tops of his class. Phillips has an easy gap-to-gap swing with quick hand speed. On the mound, he already can work up to 85 and projects to add much more as he matures.

Plays through the ball, fields out front, funnels into mid section, quick on transfers, fluid footwork. On the mound, arm works with some length on the back-side, accelerates quickly to get out front consistently, ¾ slot. Clean drop and drive delivery, works on-line, lands square, finishes square to home. Fastball sat 81-82, touched 83, flashed run. Curveball, 12/6 shape, depth, 68-69.
