Angels, Brett Phillips agree to one-year deal
ANAHEIM, CA (SNN-TV) - The Angels and outfielder Brett Phillips are in agreement on a one-year major league deal that will see him make $1.2M.
Phillips, 29 in May, has seen big league action in each of the past six seasons, spending time with the Brewers, Royals, Rays and Orioles. His best season to date was 2021 with the Rays, where he hit 13 home runs and stole 14 bases.
The Angels will likely be looking to implement Phillips in a part-time role off the bench, coming in for pinch running and defensive substitutions. The primary outfield should consist of Mike Trout in center flanked by Hunter Renfroe and Taylor Ward in the corners with Shohei Ohtani serving as the designated hitter most nights. The club also has Mickey Moniak and Jo Adell as outfield options on its 40-man roster, but both of them have struggled at the major league level.
