Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is one of the most popular players on the team, along with Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, Drew Stubbs and Mike Leake.

Phillips has always been a fan favorite since coming over from the Cleveland Indians back in 2005 in a trade, but he really became even more popular when he started a Twitter account, regularly conversing with fans, allowing them to win prizes and letting them know what he is doing on and off the field.

The Reds management recognizing this and Phillips’ baseball talent, reached an agreement on a new six-year, $72.5 million contract on Tuesday.

The deal replaces the current one-year, $12.5 million deal and extends from the 2012 season to 2017.

Phillips was the Silver Slugger Award and Gold Glove in the National League in 2011.

With this current deal, the Reds have locked up the core of their team first baseman Joey Votto, right fielder Jay Bruce, lefty reliever Aroldis Chapman, ace starter Johnny Cueto and closer Sean Marshall.

Phillips currently is out of the lineup to let a hamstring strain heal.
