‘Choi Ji-man’s former colleague’ outfielder Phillips signs a contract with the Angels

Angels sign Phillips.

Local media such as The Athletic Ken Rosenthal and New York Post John Heyman reported on January 10 (Korean time) that the Los Angeles Angels had agreed to a contract with outfielder Brett Phillips.

The Angels signed Phillips to a one-year, $1.2 million major league contract. After being released from the Baltimore Orioles in October, Phillips found a new team after three months.

Phillips, a right-handed left-handed outfielder born in 1994, was drafted by the Houston Astros in the sixth round of the 2012 draft and traded for Carlos Gomez to the Milwaukee Brewers in the summer of 2015, along with Josh Hader and Adrian Houser. And in 2017, he debuted in the big leagues.

In the summer of 2018, he moved to the Kansas City Royals in a trade with Mike Moustakas, and in August 2020, he wore a Tampa Bay Rays uniform in a trade with Lucius Fox. He then moved to Baltimore in the summer of 2022 and finished the season there. 토토사이트

354 games, .188/.273/.348, 28 homers, 93 RBIs, and 36 stolen bases in 6 seasons in the big leagues. He had quick feet and decent slugging power, but showed a lack of refinement. Phillips is a player who shines more on defense than hitting. He is an excellent defender with a wide range of defense and a strong shoulder, and is a player who can firmly defend all positions in the outfield.

The Angels have five outfielders on their 40-man roster, including Mike Trout, Taylor Ward, Hunter Renfro, Joe Adell and Mickey Moniak. All players focused on offense rather than defense. Phillips is expected to boost the Angels’ outfield defense.
