Player Outlook
Evan Phillips was outstanding for the second year in a row, converting a career-high 24 saves while once again leading qualified relievers with a 0.83 WHIP. The 29-year-old only accounted for 54.5% of the Dodgers' 44 saves, but he was clearly their top reliever, earning save opportunities early in the season. While he did go long stretches without recording a save, Phillips was still valuable for fantasy purposes. He boosted ratios while striking out batters at a respectable 28.2% clip. His Statcast page is painted red, with a 115.1 mph (Max EV) rocket off the bat of Byron Buxton the only real blemish. Meanwhile, his 88.2 mph average exit velocity was still above-average (67th percentile). Phillips is establishing himself as one of the top high-leverage relievers in the game. If you could guarantee 30-plus saves, he'd likely be a top 5 closer, but since the Dodgers aren't exclusive with his usage in the 9th inning, he'll settle in the 10-15 range for 2024 drafts.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Retires four for save No. 3

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Grabs second save

    Phillips picked up a save Friday versus the Cardinals, striking out one in a clean inning. Phillips set down St. Louis in order in the ninth inning, closing out a three-run Los Angeles victory for his second save this year. The 29-year-old right-hander figures to be a steady source of saves this year, holding down the closing job on an elite Dodgers team.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Nabs smooth save in season opener

    Phillips earned a save against the Padres in South Korea on Wednesday, striking out one batter in a perfect inning. Phillips entered in the ninth frame with the Dodgers holding a comfortable three-run lead, and he kept things stress-free for his club by retiring the side in order on 12 pitches. After easing his way into the closer role last year, the right-hander appears set for steady work in that capacity in 2024, with manager Dave Roberts commenting early in camp that Phillips would get "the brunt" of the team's save opportunities. That makes him an appealing fantasy target given the Dodgers' potential to rack up wins and Phillips' outstanding results each of the past two seasons.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Set for majority of save chances

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Thursday that Phillips is in line to receive "the brunt" of the save chances for the team, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The Dodgers flirted with signing Josh Hader and have been mentioned as a possible landing spot for Kenley Jansen if he's traded. For the time being, however, Phillips is the clear best option to close, having posted a dominant 1.74 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 152:33 K:BB across 134.2 innings during his time in Los Angeles. The 29-year-old notched 24 saves in 27 chances last season.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Notches 24th save

    Phillips picked up the save in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Giants, striking out one over a perfect inning. Phillips will wrap up the regular season having allowed just one earned run in his last 18.1 innings, going 9-for-10 in save opportunities in that span. While the Dodgers employed a committee at times this season, the 29-year-old Phillips emerged as their top closing option in the second half. He'll wrap up the campaign with a 2.05 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, 66:13 K:BB across 61.1 innings while converting 24 of 27 save chances.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Blows save but earns win

    Phillips (2-4) blew a save but earned the win over Seattle on Saturday, allowing an unearned run on two hits and one walk over one inning. The game was scoreless after nine innings before Los Angeles put up a run in the top of the 10th. Phillips entered in the bottom of the frame looking for a challenging save and retired the first two batters he faced before giving up a two-out single to Mike Ford that scored the tying run. Phillips then surrendered a double and issued an intentional walk to load the bases, but he escaped the jam by getting Teoscar Hernandez to ground out, and Phillips earned the win as a result of the Dodgers plating five runs in the top of the 11th. The blown save was hardly a meltdown considering the circumstances, but it was still Phillips' first since July 4. He's been excellent since then, posting a 2.08 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 20:3 K:BB over 21.2 frames while picking up 11 saves.

Phillips is 23-for-25 in save chances while adding six saves this season, and he's maintained a 2.43 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 61:11 K:BB through 55.2 innings. He's converted his last 11 save chances in a row.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Clean inning for save

    Phillips pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Diamondbacks.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Shaky in 15th save

    Phillips allowed two runs on two hits and a walk over one inning, earning the save in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks. Phillips was tasked with protecting a three-run lead but nearly made a mess of it before getting Corbin Carroll to ground into a game-ending double-play. This was just the fourth time Phillips has allowed multiple runs this season, though he's also been scored on in each of his last two outings. He's now at a 2.72 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 47:10 K:BB with 15 saves and six holds through 43 innings overall.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Collects save Friday

    Phillips allowed one run on one hit over 1.1 innings to earn the save in Friday's 10-5 win over the Padres. He did not strike out or walk a batter. Phillips entered with two outs and two on in the eighth inning and escaped the jam to protect a three-run lead. The Dodgers then tacked on three runs in the ninth, though Phillips gave one of them back on a solo home run by Juan Soto. Phillips is up to 14 saves in 16 chances this season while serving as the Dodgers' top high-leverage option, and the fact that the team didn't make any high-profile additions at the trade deadline gives him some job security. He's added a 2.36 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 47:9 K:BB with six holds over 42 innings.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Picks up 13th save

    Phillips allowed a hit and struck out one over 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the save in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Reds. Phillips had not received a save chance since he blew one July 4. His strong showing Saturday extended his scoreless streak to 5.2 innings over his last six appearances. Ryan Brasier and Alex Vesia each picked up a save this month, making the back end of the Dodgers bullpen a tricky one to forecast over the remaining two months. Phillips is still in the closer committee, as is Brusdar Graterol, though the recently re-acquired Joe Kelly could also enter that mix. Phillips has a 2.21 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 47:9 K:BB through 40.2 innings this season while adding 13 saves and six holds.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Blows save Tuesday

    Phillips (1-3) allowed three runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two over one inning, taking the loss and a blown save in Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Pirates. Phillips' 10.1-inning scoreless streak came to a sudden halt when he failed to protect a one-run lead. He gave up all of three runs over 11 appearances in June, and this was just the third time in 36 outings he's surrendered multiple runs. The poor performance puts him at 12-for-14 in save chances while pitching to a 2.57 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 41:9 K:BB through 35 innings. This was his third consecutive day on the mound, which may have played a part in his struggles, and he'll likely be unavailable if a save chance arises Wednesday.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Earns 12th save

    Phillips hit a batter but did not yield a hit or a walk in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Monday's 5-2 win over the Pirates. Phillips threw 14 pitches (nine strikes) in the outing, erasing the hit batsman with a double play before getting Bryan Reynolds to fly out. Phillips has put a runner on base in four of his last five appearances, but he's riding a 10.1-inning scoreless streak dating back to June 13. He's up to 12 saves, six holds, a 1.85 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 39:7 K:BB through 34 innings this season. Phillips remains in a committee situation, but he's pitched well enough to continue seeing save chances.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Faces one batter, earns save

    Phillips picked up the save in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Colorado. He threw a scoreless one-third of an inning. Phillips entered with the bases loaded and two outs after Phil Bickford handed out three walks in the inning, but he managed to retire his first batter and grab his 11th save of the campaign. After going over a month without logging a save, Phillips has logged four in the last week and looks to be the Dodgers preferred ninth-inning arm at the moment, ahead of Brusdar Graterol.

  • Dodgers' Evan Phillips: Secures save Saturday

    Phillips earned a save against the Astros on Saturday, allowing one hit in a scoreless inning. After Los Angeles rallied for three runs to take the lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, Phillips was tasked with closing out the win in the ninth. He immediately allowed the tying run to reach base on a Kyle Tucker single, but Tucker was wiped out on a double play, and Phillips finished things off by getting Yainer Diaz to fly out. Brusdar Graterol notched a save in the opener of the series Friday and continues to be a ninth-inning option, but Phillips is the more desirable Dodgers reliever for fantasy purposes, as he's notched three of the team's past four saves and hasn't been scored upon in any of his past five appearances.
