  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Steals fourth bag

    Philips went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Phillips earned his fifth straight start Wednesday thanks to the ongoing absence of Manuel Margot (hamstring). He's been productive of late, slugging two home runs and chipping in a stolen base across his last three games. Phillips is still hitting just .197/.256/.380 while striking out at a 39.2 percent clip across 79 plate appearances on the season, though he could provide stolen-base production in the short term.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Slugs another homer

    Phillips went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Tigers.

    Phillips has left the yard in back-to-back games and now has three extra-base hits over that two-game stretch, which exceeds his output (two) from his first 24 games combined. Thanks to his hot bat in addition to the continued absence of Manuel Margot (hamstring), Phillips looks like he'll be a regular in the Tampa Bay outfield in the short term. He'll make his fifth straight start Wednesday, manning center field and batting ninth, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Records three-hit night

    Phillips went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a double in Monday's loss to the Tigers.

    Phillips got his club on the board in the sixth inning with a solo shot to right center, marking his third home run of the young campaign. He was just 1-for-22 at the dish over his last 10 games entering the night, so perhaps this multi-hit performance is a sign he's starting to turn the corner.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Gets third straight start

    Phillips will start in right field and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Manuel Margot's (hamstring) placement on the injured list Sunday looks like it'll open up more work for both Phillips and Harold Ramirez in right field. The two could work in a platoon, with Phillips getting the larger share of playing time as the left-handed hitter of the duo. Phillips finds himself in the lineup Monday for the third game in a row.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Smacks second long ball

    Phillips went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Tuesday's 10-7 victory against the Athletics in 10 innings.

    Phillips took Oakland starter Paul Blackburn deep to center in the second inning and later tacked on a walk in the 10th inning. Following the recent demotion of Josh Lowe to Triple-A Durham and the placement of Ji-Man Choi (elbow) on the injured list, Phillips looks poised to see more opportunities against right-handed pitching. Phillips' start Tuesday was his fourth in the Rays' last six games.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Tallies two RBI, stolen base

    Phillips went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and two RBI in a 2-1 win Thursday over Seattle.

    Phillips drove in Harold Ramirez twice with singles, accounting for all the Rays' offense Thursday. He stole his third base of the year following his second hit but was left stranded. It was the first appearance for the charismatic outfielder in five days and the first time he recorded two hits in a game this season. After walking in 10.5 percent of his plate appearances in his first five seasons, the 27-year-old has only walked once in 31 trips to the plate this season.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Swipes second bag

    Phillips went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base Monday against the Cubs.

    Phillips continues to work into Tampa Bay's outfield rotation, splitting time with both Manuel Margot and Kevin Kiermaier. His production with the bat has been light -- which should be expected -- as he's collected only four hits with one walk across 22 plate appearances. However, he could surpass his previous career high of 14 stolen bases in a season, as he's already tallied a pair early on in the 2022 campaign.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Slow start to season

    Phillips went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Monday's loss to the Athletics.

    Phillips has been in the starting lineup for two of Tampa Bay's four games this season, splitting time with Manuel Margot. Though a small sample, Phillips has struggled to make contact early, striking out in four of his nine plate appearances. His recent track record suggests he'll continue to struggle at the dish, but he'll remain a regular presence in the lineup due to his defensive ability as an outfielder.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Signs deal without arbiter

    Phillips and the Rays agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.4 million contract Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Phillips' 13 homers and 14 steals in 292 plate appearances last season hint at some fantasy upside if he finds himself in the lineup more regularly this season, but his 38.7 percent strikeout rate means that's unlikely to happen.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Left off ALDS roster

    Phillips wasn't included on the Rays' ALDS roster, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Phillips had a late-season slump in 2021, as he went just 1-for-19 with a triple, three runs, two RBI, a walk and 10 strikeouts to close out the regular season. Jordan Luplow will serve as outfield depth during the ALDS against Boston.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Deep slump to close out season

    Phillips hit .053 (1-for-19) with a triple, two RBI, a walk, one hit by pitch and three runs over his last 11 regular-season games.

    The utility option logged six starts over that span but did next to nothing at the plate with the opportunities. The season-ending funk was somewhat emblematic of a 2021 campaign that often had an all-or-nothing quality to it for Phillips -- he generated a paltry .202 average and .297 on-base percentage yet mustered a solid .415 slugging percentage thanks to 25 of his 51 hits going for extra bases (nine doubles, three triples, 13 home runs). Despite the recent struggles, Adam Berry of projects Phillips as a likely member of the team's ALDS roster.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Clobbers walkoff home run

    Phillips went 1-for-5 with a walkoff three-run homer in Friday's 7-4 win over Detroit.

    The Rays forced extra innings after trailing 4-1 in the ninth and Phillips walked it off with his 13th homer of the year. He's gone deep in two straight games and three of his last five. The 27-year-old outfielder is now slashing .214/.310/.436 with 24 extra-base hits and 42 RBI through 270 plate appearances this season.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Swats 12th homer

    Phillips went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

    His ninth-inning blast off Joakim Soria was too little, too late for the Rays. Phillips has gone yard twice in three starts since returning from an ankle injury Sept. 12, and on the season, the bench outfielder has 12 homers, 14 steals, 39 RBI and 46 runs through 265 plate appearances, albeit with a poor .214 batting average.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Fills stat sheet in return

    Phillips (ankle) went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, two walks and a stolen base in Sunday's 8-7 extra-innings loss to Detroit.

    The 27-year-old was productive throughout the contest, his first since Aug. 29 after he spent two weeks on the injured list with a sprained ankle. Phillips is up to a .216/.316/.423 slash line with 11 homers, 14 steals, 37 RBI and 45 runs scored through 258 plate appearances. The outfielder isn't expected to see an everyday role now that he's healthy, but he can fill in across the outfield as needed.

  • Rays' Brett Phillips: Activated from IL

    The Rays reinstated Phillips (ankle) from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    A sprained ankle has sidelined Phillips since Aug. 30, but he's back to fill his role as a backup outfielder and pinch runner. He hit a modest .237 in 38 August at-bats, although he did manage four home runs and 11 RBI in his limited playing time.
