      Reds' Brandon Phillips: Turned down two trades

      The Reds are unlikely to try to trade Phillips again after he turned down two trades this offseason, one with the Nationals and one with the Diamondbacks, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. In both cases the trade broke down when Phillips, who has a full no-trade clause, wanted more money to approve the trade and a deal was not reached. The Reds would like to be able to trade Phillips and play Jose Peraza, but their plans may be put on hold.

      Reds' Brandon Phillips: Nationals moving on

      The Nationals are "moving on" from Phillips and will instead pursue other options at second base, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Cincinnati tried to convince Phillips to waive his no-trade clause after reaching a deal with Washington late Thursday, but it seems either Phillips refused or the Nats grew impatient as negotiations dragged on. Either way, Phillips remains with the Reds for now, but after acquiring Jose Peraza in the Todd Frazier trade, it seems likely the team will continue looking for avenues to move Phillips.

      Reds' Brandon Phillips: Has not agreed to waive no-trade clause

      As of late Friday, the Reds still have made no progress toward convincing Phillips to waive his no-trade clause, the Washington Post reports. The Reds and Nationals agreed to a deal late Thursday that would send Phillips to Washington, presumably for prospects, but Cincinnati still has yet to convince Phillips to OK the trade. It's assumed Phillips will not waive his no-trade clause and keep the terms of his current deal with the Reds, so the team may need to add some money to the existing years on his contract. Playing for a contender and under former manager Dusty Baker are selling points for the Reds, but money talks, and playing time may be a concern for Phillips as well.
