MLB Hot Stove Trades: Braves acquire Brandon Phillips in deal with Reds

Phillips reportedly waived his no-trade clause Saturday.

The Atlanta Braves have acquired Brandon Phillips from the Cincinnati Reds for a low price and can look forward to reaping potentially tremendous benefits from a one-year rental of him. Durant says all the trash talk is just 'part of the game'Stephen A.: Kevin Durant needs to own leavingWestbrook not surprised by Durant booingStephen A. felt sad for Westbrooksc It's not clear who the Reds will get in return.

This isn't the first time the Reds tried to trade the second baseman.

Bartolo Colon signed a one year contract with Atlanta this offseason. Yes, Phillips used that trade leverage to squeeze the Reds into a very, very uncomfortable position.

Now, pending a physical, ESPN's Buster Olney reported Phillips is indeed on the way to the Braves. He has done that several times through the years, most notably blocking deals to the Nationals last offseason and the Yankees the offseason before that.

Phillips batted.291 with 11 homers and 64 RBIs last season. He has also revivified his stealing ability in the past two campaigns, stealing 23 bases in 2015 and 14 in 2016. Though he drew high marks for his defense at shortstop in the minors, his value was neutralized by struggles as a super-utilityman bouncing between leftfield, centerfield, shortstop and second base en route to a combined -8 DRS and 0.1 WAR.

For Atlanta, Phillips will serve as a stopgap until prospect Ozzie Albies is ready. The 28-year-old Portuondo is from Cuba and has yet to make it to the majors.
