Angels sign OF Brett Phillips for one year, $1.2 million

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Veteran outfielder Brett Phillips has agreed to a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels. The club announced the deal Monday for Phillips, who is likely to compete with Jo Adell and Mickey Moniak for the job as the Halos’ fourth outfielder. Phillips is joining his fifth big league team after previous stints with Milwaukee, Kansas City, Tampa Bay and Baltimore. He is a career .188 hitter who contributes largely with defense and speed. Phillips played in 83 games last season between the Rays and the Orioles, batting .144 with five homers and 15 RBIs.
