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.
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.
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.
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.
Phillips (ankle) has rejoined the Rays on their current road trip and will stand in on bullpen sessions over the next few days before likely being activated prior to Friday's series opener against the Tigers, the team's official site reports.
Phillips played in one rehab game for the rookie-level FCL Rays on Saturday, logging four at-bats as the designated hitter without setbacks. That was apparently enough for the team to get a positive read on the condition of Phillips' recovering ankle, and it will continue to take a closer look over the remainder of the week as he engages in pregame workouts in addition to tracking pitches in bullpen sessions.
Phillips (ankle) went 1-for-4 with a solo home run while serving as the designated hitter during the Florida Complex League Rays' win over the FCL Braves squad Saturday in Game 1 of a doubleheader.
Phillips was able to log all four possible plate appearances while serving as the leadoff hitter, although he was pinch-run for in the eighth after starting the extra frame as the inning-opening runner on second base. Phillips didn't play in the second game of the twin bill, but there were no reports of a setback, and the team's official site reports he should travel with the Rays on the road trip that begins Monday in advance of potentially being activated when first eligible Thursday.
Phillips landed on the injured list with a sprained right ankle Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Phillips' absence won't significantly alter the Rays' plans in the outfield, as he's merely a part-time player, starting nine out of 25 games in the month of August. The team won't call up another outfielder to take his place, at least for now, as J.P. Feyereisen (shoulder) will return from the injured list to claim the open roster spot.
Phillips went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 9-2 win over the Orioles.
The 27-year-old led off the sixth inning with an inside-the-park homer, one of five round-trippers the Rays collected in a three-inning stretch during the rout. Phillips has been racking up home runs the conventional way lately, too -- five of his 10 on the season have come in his last seven starts dating back to July 29, a stretch during which he's slashing .269/.296/.885 with 15 RBI.
Phillips went 1-for-4 with a grand slam Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Phillips made his one hit of the game count by delivering a grand slam in the ninth inning. It was his ninth homer of the season, and he's now gone deep in consecutive starts. Phillips remains a part-time player as a depth outfielder on the team's roster, making it difficult to expect consistent production from him. He now has 227 plate appearances on the season, and he's hit .213/.307/.411.
Phillips went 2-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI and a strikeout in Sunday's 9-6 win over the Orioles.
Phillips drew a second consecutive start after he doubled Saturday, and he delivered with his first multi-homer game of the season in Sunday's comeback win. Since the All-Star break, the 27-year-old has gone 9-for-34 with four home runs, a triple, a double, 11 RBI, 10 runs and a stolen base across 18 appearances.
Phillips went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in a win over the Yankees on Thursday.
Given the 14-0 final score, there were obviously no shortage of big hits for the Rays, but Phillips provided the biggest one with his sixth-inning grand slam. The outfielder continues to put good wood on the ball when he makes contact, as he now has 15 extra-base hits (seven doubles, two triples, six home runs), which have helped lead to 24 RBI on just 38 hits overall. Phillips has added 12 steals, helping ameliorate the sting of his lackluster .210/.308/.370 slash line.
Phillips went 2-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Cleveland.
Phillips provided a pair of singles as the only Tampa Bay hitter with a multi-hit effort Sunday. He added a stolen base, his 12th in 15 attempts this season. The 27-year-old outfielder lifted his slash line to .213/.313/.362 with five home runs, 20 RBI and 32 runs scored across 203 plate appearances. He'll continue to serve mostly as a fourth outfielder to cover for when Kevin Kiermaier or Randy Arozarena need days off.
Phillips went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 8-2 win over Cleveland.
Getting the start in right field and batting ninth, Phillips took J.C. Mejia deep in the third inning. The 27-year-old's defense and athleticism make him a solid fourth outfielder for the Rays, and he's provided some modest fantasy value in deep formats by slashing .205/.308/.357 with five homers, 11 steals, 20 RBI and 32 runs through 200 plate appearances on the season.
Phillips went 1-for-3 with a triple in a win over the Orioles on Wednesday.
Phillips made good use of one of his occasional starts, producing his second three-bagger of the campaign. The versatile veteran has quite the interesting fantasy profile, as his abysmal .198/.301/.335 slash line is partly offset by the fact he's laced 13 of his 33 hits for extra bases (seven doubles, two triples, four home runs) and also has 11 stolen bases in 14 attempts.
Phillips will start in center field and bat ninth Wednesday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
He'll start for only the second time in six second-half games while the lefty-hitting Kevin Kiermaier takes a seat with southpaw Keegan Akin on the hill for Baltimore. Dating back to the beginning of June, Phillips is slashing .141/.267/.250 in 64 at-bats.
Phillips went 1-for-6 with a solo home run in Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland.
The 27-year-old launched his fourth homer of 2021 in the sixth inning of Game 1 before striking out three times in Game 2. Though Phillips provides nice defense and speed off the bench, he has just three hits in his last 28 at-bats and is hitting .201 on the season.
Phillips, who went 1-for-3 with two stolen bases and a run in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday, now has a .331 on-base percentage and nine steals in his part-time role.
The outfielder is only hitting .216 and carries a forgettable .652 OPS, so he's not on the radar in shallow mixed leagues. However, AL-only and very deep mixed formats are another matter, as Phillips' 14.0 percent walk rate, career-high nine swipes and 20 runs are affording him some value in those scenarios.
Phillips drew three walks and scored once over four plate appearances in a win over the Orioles on Sunday.
The utility man was a thorn in the side of the Orioles throughout the afternoon, pushing his on-base percentage to .329 with Sunday's trio of free passes. Phillips owns just a .212 average and .668 OPS, but he's laced nine of his 25 hits on the season for extra bases and has recorded seven steals on 10 attempts.
Phillips went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Phillies on Sunday.
Phillips drew his fourth start in the last five games and came through out of the bottom of the order, launching his third home run of the season in the fifth inning off Zach Eflin. The 27-year-old outfielder has hit safely in three of the past four games, although seven of the nine outs he's made during that span have come via strikeout.
Phillips is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays.
Phillips has enjoyed a run of steady playing time for most of May, but his opportunities will likely become more scarce following Kevin Kiermaier's return from the injured list last week. The 26-year-old is on the bench for the fourth time in six games Monday as the Rays wrap up their series with the Blue Jays.
