Phillips went 0-for-2 with a strikeout for the Angels in his four games throughout spring training. Phillips only appeared in four spring games for Los Angeles during the spring. He scored one run and had just two at-bats total throughout the exhibition season.
Phillips has signed a minor league contract with the Angels, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Phillips, 25, spent 2015 in independent ball with the St. Paul Saints of the American Association, where he hit .269/.316/.341 with two home runs and 35 RBI in 91 games. His last affiliated action came in 2014, when he hit .230/.320/.307 in 90 games split largely between High-A and Double-A. He'll serve as organizational filler for the Angels.
