Phillip Joseph Nevin (born January 19, 1971 in Fullerton, California) is a former Major League Baseball player. He played for the Minnesota Twins (2006), Chicago Cubs (2006), Texas Rangers (2005-2006) San Diego Padres (1999-2005), Anaheim Angels (1998), Detroit Tigers (1995-1997), and Houston Astros (1995). Nevin attended El Dorado High School, in Placentia, California and California State University, Fullerton where he was awarded the Golden Spikes Award in 1992. He was also the "Most Outstanding Player" of the 1992 NCAA College World Series. He bats and throws right-handed.

Nevin was selected as the first pick of the 1992 Major League Baseball Draft by the Astros. Derek Jeter was selected sixth in the draft; Hal Newhouser, a scout for Houston at the time, quit the franchise over the decision not to pick Jeter.

During his twelve-season career, Nevin was a .270 hitter with 208 home runs and 743 RBI in 1217 games. He made the National League All-Star team in 2001. That year he led major league third basemen in errors, however, with 27, and had the lowest fielding percentage of all major league third basemen (.930).

On July 25, 2005, Nevin rejected a trade that would have sent him to the Baltimore Orioles for pitcher Sidney Ponson. The proposed deal was contingent upon Nevin's approval. He had the right to block a trade to all but eight teams, including the Orioles. Four days later, he was traded to the Texas Rangers for Chan Ho Park.

On May 31, 2006, he was traded to the Chicago Cubs; the Rangers were believed to be paying the majority of the amount still due to him on his contract. In return, the Rangers received second baseman/outfielder Jerry Hairston, Jr.. On August 31, the Minnesota Twins announced the trade of Nevin from the Cubs to the Twins for a player to be named later (Adam Harben) and "cash considerations." To make room for Nevin, Twins' outfielder Shannon Stewart was placed on the 60-day disabled list.

On May 12, 2007, Nevin announced his retirement. He then began working pre-game radio shows with the Padres. In June 2008, he returned to Goodwin Field at Cal State Fullerton as the ESPN analyst for the Super Regional against Stanford. In December 2008, he was named the manager of the Orange County Flyers in the independent Golden Baseball League.
