#ThankYou soooo much #BravesCountry for all the love & support this year. Even tho the season didn't go as plan, I still had an amazing time wearing that jersey I grew up watching across my chest!!! And to my manager, teammates, coaches, staff, and front office... thanks again for everything and showing my family & friends nothing but love. #Salute #ALLREADY #ChopOn #FILA 💯
Phillips, 36, was batting .291 with 11 homers and 52 RBIs for the Braves this season. He recently became just the fifth major leaguer whose primary position is second base to reach 2,000 hits, 200 homers and 200 stolen bases.
Friday's move was the second trade for Phillips in his career; the Cleveland Indians dealt him to the Cincinnati Reds in 2006. The Raleigh, North Carolina, native has not played for an American League team since that time.
