Brandon Phillips – 2B

Phillips was acquired by the Reds after Cleveland had decided to go in a different direction after his development had slowed. Since coming to Cincinnati in 2006, Phillips has combined rangy defensive with some pop at the plate to become a staple in the organization. Since joining the Reds, Phillips has hit .278 with a .756 OPS. This includes over 190 home runs, with three seasons of at least 20, with 30 in 2007. He also combines the speed element and snagged nearly 200 bases through 2016. Phillips is a three-time All Star and a four-time Gold Glove winner and has solidified the right side of the infield with Joe Votto for years. Phillips is wrapping up the 10-year, $98 million contract he is on after the 2017 season.
