Analysis: ''I'm not going on the DL, that's not going to happen,'' he said. "I'm going to be like a Chipotle burrito. I'm wrapping that thing up.'' Manager Brian Snitker said he hoped to have Phillips back in the lineup Friday.

Feb. 12 9:09 AM PT10:09 AM MT11:09 AM CT12:09 PM ET12:09 ET17:09 GMT1:09 10:09 AM MST12:09 PM EST12:39 PM VEN21:09 UAE11:09 AM CT-Phillips has agreed to waive his no-trade clause and has been acquired by the Braves in exchange for minor league pitchers Andrew McKirahan and Carlos Portuondo.
Analysis: The Reds will reportedly pick up all but $1 million on the $14 million Phillips is owed in the final year of his contract. The 35-year-old, who has blocked deals on several occasions over the past two offseasons, will presumably serve as Atlanta' primary second baseman after hitting .291 with 11 homers, 64 RBIs and 14 steals in 2016. For Cincinnati, the move clears a path to regular playing time for youngster Jose Peraza.
