according to The Cincinnati Reds agreed to trade second baseman Brandon Phillips to the Atlanta Braves, according to multiple reports Sunday.
In exchange for Phillips, the Reds will get left-handed pitcher Andrew McKirahan and right-hander Carlos Portuondo, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
McKirahan, 27, appeared in 27 games in relief for the Braves in 2015, posting a 5.93 ERA in 27 1/3 innings.
Phillips passed his physical Sunday and will retain his full no-trade rights, which he waived to approve the trade to Atlanta, a source told ESPN’s Jim Bowden.
the Braves wanted Phillips partially due to a left shoulder injury sustained by infielder Sean Rodriguez in a car accident on Jan. 28, according to Fox.

The Braves will honor Phillips contractual no-trade (reported by Jim Bowden) but not his 10-5 rights.
The Braves were quick to point out that this is not a change to their no-trade clause policy.
Sean Rodriguez’ injury forced the Atlanta Braves to make a last-minute trade for the former All Star second baseman.
