Meet Bri Hillman — Girlfriend of Brewers OF Prospect Brett Phillips

||

Brewers fans antsy for the call up of top prospect Lewis Brinson will have to wait just a little bit longer, because the club opted to recall outfielder Brett Phillips while Travis Shaw is on paternity leave.

Phillips, of course, is no slouch himself as he’s slashing .297/.369/.589 with 11 home runs and 41 RBI in just 49 AAA games. He’s not expected to stay with the big league club too long, which may explain why he got the call over Brinson.

Minor League Ball’s scouting report on Brett:

Age 22, sixth round pick by Astros in 2012, acquired in Carlos Gomez trade; hit disappointing .229/.332/.397 with 16 homers, 67 walks, 154 strikeouts in 441 at-bats in Double-A; still scouts well with plus speed, plus raw power, and 70-grade throwing arm; can crush mistakes and makes an effort to work counts but problems with swing mechanics were exploited by Southern League pitchers; given tools and past success he deserves more chances to make adjustments but he may be at least another year away.

Off the field, Brett is already taken as he’s dating Bri Hillman — she attends Texas A&M and runs a fashion blog.
