After working more in the upper 80s last summer, Phillips saw an uptick in velocity this spring, reaching 93 mph early in outings. Phillips has a loose arm action and there's plenty of room to fill in his 6-foot-4, 195-pound frame. He shows some ability to spin a breaking ball, but his offspeed stuff is far from ready. Phillips may take some time to develop, but his outstanding athleticism and effortless motion indicate a high ceiling on the mound. He is committed to Manatee (Fla.) CC.
