He split time between the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Angels, and most notably the Cincinnati Reds for 11 seasons. Over the course of his career, Phillips has been named a three-time All-Star, four-time Gold Glove winner, and a silver slugger appearing in just under 1,900 games over the course of his career.
