Evan Phillips

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
$Signed a one-year contract with the Rays in August of 2021. Waived by the Dodgers in August of 2021. Claimed off waivers by the Dodgers in August of 2021.
Registers win Saturday
PLos Angeles Dodgers
October 2, 2022
Phillips (7-3) earned the win over Colorado on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out two batters in one scoreless inning.
ANALYSIS
Phillips got the eighth inning with the score tied 4-4 and worked around a two-out single and stolen base to keep the Rockies off the board. Los Angeles put up a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame, rewarding Phillips with his seventh win. The right-hander continues to thrive as one of the league's most effective bullpen arms -- since June 1, he's posted a minuscule 0.42 ERA and 0.63 WHIP along with a 51:10 K:BB over 45 outings covering 43 innings.
