According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, Brandon Phillips is more willing to waive his no-trade clause this offseason that he has been in the past.
With only one year remaining on his deal with the Reds, the veteran second baseman appears to be more open to a move out of Cincinnati. With the Reds looking to create room for Jose Peraza and Dilson Herrera, there's a very realistic chance that Phillips gets moved at some point this winter. The 35-year-old slashed .291/.320/.416 with 11 homers, 64 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 2016. Nov 12 - 12:40 PM

Sep 4 - 11:46 AM

Brandon Phillips was scratched from the Reds scheduled lineup on Saturday due to a sore foot.

Brandon Phillips belted his ninth home run of the season as the Reds were clobbered by the Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon in Arizona.

Aug 28 - 9:47 PM

Brandon Phillips singled three times in four at-bats, came around to score all three times and drove in a pair of runs versus the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Both RBI came on a second-inning single to right. He has a .286 batting average with eight home runs, 60 runs scored, 52 RBI and nine stolen bases on the season. Phillips was a top five fantasy second baseman for most of a decade but has faded with age. He can still be effective when healthy but he is rarely fully healthy anymore.
Aug 27 - 11:21 PM

Brandon Phillips doubled twice, drove in two key runs, scored one of his own and stole a base on Wednesday versus the Marlins.

He helped produce all three runs his team put on the board. He also made a nifty defensive play to rob Dee Gordon of a hit, so it was an all-around good game for the Reds' veteran second baseman. The swiped bag gave him nine on the season to go with his .284 batting average, eight homers, 50 RBI and 54 runs. He has played through a few nagging knee and hand injuries this year but has remained productive.
