The Reds and Nationals have a deal in place to trade Brandon Phillips to Washington. The Nationals are now working out an agreement with Phillips who has to waive his no trade rights. Reporting by Ken Rosenthal.

Sorry to be a little late on the Phillips rumors tonight. Was at The Force Awakens. An hour ago, Phillips wrote a cryptic tweet that indicated he was flying from Cincinnati to Washington DC (202 area code).

No word on possible return for the Reds. Don’t expect too much unless the Reds eat some of Phillips salary (which is a decent way to spend some of the payroll they’re saving with all these trades).
