Beau Philip
Name: Beau Philip
Born: Oct 23, 1998 in Sacramento, CA
High School: Oak Ridge HS, El Dorado Hills, Calif.
College: Oregon State
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 190 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (60th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2019 (signed for $697,500)
Philip played two seasons at San Joaquin Delta (Calif.) JC, where he hit .354 with 10 home runs and 30 stolen bases before joining Oregon State for his junior season in 2019. He’s done well in his transition to the Pac-12, hitting .312/.362/.475 through 39 games for the Beavers, though his gaudy stolen base numbers from the JuCo ranks didn’t translate. He’ll need to improve his approach against breaking balls at the next level. And while it would typically be a tough task to replace Cadyn Grenier, who was drafted in the supplemental first round in 2018, as Oregon State’s shortstop, Philip has risen to the occasion and played well defensively. He moves side to side well and does a particularly nice job of making plays up the middle to his glove side. He has plenty of arm strength for the position, so much so, in fact, that if Phillip struggles with the bat at the next level, he could have a realistic fallback option on the mound.
