01/17/2014 - Baseball Factory Spring Training at the Yankees Training Complex (Ages 12-14) Phillip is 2018 graduate who plays first base and showed the ability to make adjustments while at the Yankee Training event. As a first baseman he displayed good awareness, keeps the ball in front of his body, and makes the routine play. Phillip can improve by increasing lateral quickness, polish footwork around the bag at first base, and long toss for arm strength. At the plate he showed good rhythm and makes consistent contact. He can work on keeping the front side closed longer, use more lower half, and allow the ball to travel into the hitting zone.
