08/30/2020 - All-In Membership - Bradenton (Tampa), FL Samuel is a solid (6'0"/190) R/R 2-way player who continues to progress since we last saw him in July. Behind the dish, he sits in well with athletic actions and flexion. He tracks pitches into a soft mitt, framing well. He is quick laterally and centers pitches in the dirt off of his chest, keeping it in front. Throws to 2B are on the bag - pop times now at 1.97. At 3B, he has active prep and moves lightly on the balls of his feet. He has athletic actions & rhythm, funneling smoothly to a clean transfer. He has good lateral range and can make the tough plays to his BH and GS. Offensively, this RHH displays an open stance with centered balance. He fires the barrel with quick hands, connects and hits hard line-drives consistently - exit velocity now at 84 mph. Phillips has the skill-set that will play at a very high level.
