28-Year-Old PitcherRP
Los Angeles Dodgers
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Phillips went from being released by the Orioles and Rays in 2021, to posting one of the best stat lines for a relief pitcher in 2022 with the Dodgers. The 28-year-old's 1.14 ERA was best among qualified relievers, while his 0.76 WHIP was tied for third. Phillips also went on to post career best marks in innings pitched (63), holds (19) and strikeouts (77). His rapid ascension to high leverage events resulted in seven wins, which were valuable for fantasy managers who initially speculated on Phillips for saves (2). The right-hander mixes 4 pitches with a slider as his primary (44%), but uses a cutter (27%) exclusively against left-handed batters and sinker (10%) against righties. He also added velocity to his 4-seamer (19%) that averaged 96.2 mph. Phillips' breakout season should afford him a nice raise, as he qualfies for salary arbitration via Super Two status. Expect the Dodgers to avoid that to ensure Phillips is part of their high leverage plans again in 2023. Read Past Outlooks

To pitch in most important spots
PLos Angeles Dodgers
March 22, 2023
Phillips is expected to be utilized by the Dodgers "in the most important situations" this season, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
That will equate to save situations on occasion but also earlier in games in a "fireman" role. The Dodgers do not plan on having a set closer to begin the season, but Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register has written that Brusdar Graterol and Daniel Hudson (knee) -- once healthy -- have the best shot to emerge at closer if the team eventually lands on one guy. The news hinders Phillips' outlook a bit for fantasy purposes, but it's a bullpen situation that's far from settled.
