Michael Dwaine Phillips (born August 19, 1950), is an American former professional baseball player, a shortstop, second baseman, and third baseman who appeared in 712 Major League games from 1973–1983 for the San Francisco Giants, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, San Diego Padres, and Montreal Expos. Phillips batted left-handed, threw right-handed, stood 6 feet (180 cm) tall and weighed 170 pounds (77 kg).

Born in Beaumont, Texas, Phillips attended MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, and was selected by the Giants in the first round (18th pick overall) of the 1969 Major League Baseball draft. After four years of seasoning the Giants' farm system, he made the Major Leagues in 1973 and was largely a utility infielder during his career, although in 1975 he was the Mets' regular shortstop, appearing in 116 games when the club's longtime starter at the position, Bud Harrelson, was injured.

Phillips registered 416 hits, including 46 doubles and 24 triples, during his MLB career.
