Angels' Brett Phillips: Outrighted to Triple-A
Phillips cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake by the Angels on Wednesday, Taylor Blake Ward of The Sporting Tribune reports.
Phillips has the option to reject the outright assignment and elect free agency, but that seems unlikely since it would mean forfeiting his $1.2 million salary. Instead, he'll almost certainly report to Salt Lake where he'll serve as outfield depth.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Brett Phillips: Removed from roster
Phillips was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Phillips gets the boot to make room for Jared Walsh, with Walsh coming off the injured list before Saturday's game against the Twins. Phillips could see interest from a team looking for outfield depth, but if he goes unclaimed he will likely report to Triple-A Salt Lake to provide that depth for the Angels in the minors....

Angels' Brett Phillips: Gets rare start
Phillies is starting in center field and batting ninth for the Angels on Thursday against the Cardinals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
He'll patrol center field while Mike Trout gets a day off. Phillips is still looking for his first hit of the season, as he's 0-for-7 with three walks, an RBI, two runs, two steals and six strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Brett Phillips: Swipes two bags against Nats
Phillips went 0-for-1 with two walks, a run scored, an RBI and two solen bases in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Nationals.
Getting his first start of the season in center field and hitting ninth, Phillips scored the game's first run by stealing second and third base in the third inning and coming home on a throwing error by Washington catcher Keibert Ruiz. The pilfers were his first of the year, and they came before his first hit. Phillips' speed can be an asset, but he'll need an injury ahead of him in the Angels' outfield to get enough playing time to be useful even in deep fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Brett Phillips: Nabs roster spot
Phillips appears to have made the Angels' Opening Day roster with Mickey Moniak and Jo Adell recently optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake, Rhett Bolllinger of MLB.com reports.
Phillips had a hard time offensively this spring, slashing .133/.235/.289 with 20 strikeouts in 51 plate appearances. However, both Moniak and Adell have one remaining minor-league option year, so the Angels ultimately decided to stick with Phillips as their fourth outfielder. The veteran slashed just .144/.217/.249 over 225 plate appearances last season, and he may need to show some progress offensively to keep a spot on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Brett Phillips: Signs with Halos
Phillips signed a one-year, $1.2 million deal with the Angels on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Despite slashing just .144/.217/.249 across 225 plate appearances last season, Phillips will join the Angels on a major-league deal. He has four of the five tools, with the hit tool being his major weakness, but Phillips' defense and intangibles earned him a spot on the Angels' bench to open the season.... See More ... See Less
Brett Phillips: Seeking new opportunity
Phillips elected free agency Wednesday, per Triple-A Norfolk's official site.
Phillips was traded to the Orioles on Aug. 2, but he saw only 17 plate appearances with the club prior to being cast off the 40-man roster. All told, he hit only .144/.217/.249 across 225 plate appearances between the Rays and Orioles this season. Phillips will likely be seeking a minor-league deal during the offseason.... See More ...

Orioles' Brett Phillips: Accepts outright assignment
Phillips cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Phillips was cast off the Orioles' 40-man roster Sunday but will remain in the organization after he went unclaimed on waivers. He's slashed just .144/.217/.249 with five homers, 22 runs, 15 RBI and seven stolen bases over 83 major-league games this year but will attempt to sort things out in the minors.... See More ...

Orioles' Brett Phillips: Designated for assignment
Phillips was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday.
Phillips was traded to the Orioles on Aug. 2, but he will now be placed on waivers. Other teams will be able to claim him, otherwise he will report to Triple-A Norfolk or be released outright. The 28-year-old owns a .144 average with five homers, 15 RBI, 22 runs scored and seven stolen bases over 83 games with the Rays and Orioles this season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Brett Phillips: Returns to reserve role
Phillips is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.
Considering that the lefty-hitting Phillips has gone 0-for-34 against left-handed pitching this season, he wouldn't have been a candidate to start Monday against southpaw Yusei Kikuchi even if Austin Hays (oblique) required another day off. However, Hays' return to the lineup Monday means that Phillips is likely to handle a reserve role against right-handers moving forward. Phillips had started each of the Orioles' three weekend games against the Pirates, going 2-for-9 with a pair of doubles and an RBI.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Brett Phillips: Filling in for Austin Hays
Phillips will start in left field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Pirates, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Phillips will pick up his third consecutive start after going 2-for-6 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in the first two contests of the series, but his stay in Baltimore's regular lineup will likely come to an end as soon as Austin Hays (oblique) is ready to play. Hays is on the bench Sunday, but he ran, hit and threw Saturday and looks poised to avoid a stint on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Brett Phillips: Shipped to Baltimore
Phillips was sent from the Rays to the Orioles in exchange for cash considerations Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Phillips was designated for assignment Monday after striking out 40.9 percent of the time while slashing .147/.225/.250 in 75 games. The 28-year-old has flashed power and speed alongside good outfield defense in the past, but his career 37.5 percent strikeout rate means he fits best in a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brett Phillips: Designated for assignment
Phillips was designated for assignment Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Phillips played fairly regularly for the Rays in July, but his woeful .475 OPS wound up costing him a spot on both Tampa Bay's active and 40-man rosters. Despite his lack of success at the plate, Phillips could draw some interest on the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brett Phillips: Could get strong-side platoon role
Phillips is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians.
Though he's on the bench with the Guardians expected to deploy a southpaw (Kirk McCarty) as their primary pitcher out of the bullpen, the lefty-hitting Phillips could be in store for a strong-side platoon role in center field after the Rays optioned Josh Lowe to Triple-A Durham on Sunday. Phillips will give way to the switch-hitting Roman Quinn in center for the series finale with Cleveland, however.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brett Phillips: Stuck in reserve role
Phillips is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The lefty-hitting Phillips is on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Tyler Wells) for the second straight game, which seemingly signals that the Rays aren't viewing him as an everyday player. Rather than getting a longer look at Phillips while the likes of Kevin Kiermaier (hip), Manuel Margot (knee) and Harold Ramirez (thumb) are on the injured list, the Rays appear to be giving Luke Raley a chance to play in the outfield alongside Randy Arozarena and Josh Lowe....

Rays' Brett Phillips: Scores pair of runs
Phillips went 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored Friday against the Royals.
Phillips should continue to get regular run in center field with Harold Ramirez (thumb), Manuel Margot (knee) and Kevin Kiermaier (hip) all on the injured list. Phillips is hitting only .151/.230/.262 across 195 plate appearances on the season, though he's reached base five times in his last eight plate appearances while scoring four runs.... See More ...

Rays' Brett Phillips: Swats fifth homer
Phillips went 1-for-3 with a walk, a three-run home run and two runs scored Sunday against the Orioles.
Phillips took advantage of only his second start in the team's last five games by taking Jordan Lyles yard in the third inning. He now has five home runs on the season, with Sunday's long ball marking his first since May 17. Though Phillips had been losing out on playing time of late, he could see an uptick of plate appearances with Harold Ramirez (thumb) expected to be out for several weeks.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Brett Phillips: Still not starting
Phillips isn't starting Saturday's game against Baltimore, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Phillips is out of the lineup for the third time in the last four games after he went just 1-for-12 with a run and eight strikeouts over his last six matchups. Josh Lowe is starting in center field and batting sixth.... See More ... See Less
