The Blue Jays have traded third baseman Scott Rolen to the Reds, SI.com has learned.
Cincinnati dealt away 3B Edwin Encarnacion, RHP Josh Roenicke and minor league right-hander Zach Stewart.
Rolen agreed to waive his no-trade clause.
Rolen is batting .320 with eight homers and 43 RBIs. The Blue Jays included cash to pay part of Rolen's salary. Rolen has one more year left on an eight-year, $90 million deal he signed with the Cardinals. The 34-year-old Rolen is a five-time All-Star. He was the 1997 NL Rookie of the Year with Philadelphia and helped St. Louis win the 2006 World Series.
The 26-year-old Encarnacion led the Reds in errors last season with 23, and missed two months of this season with a chipped bone in his left wrist. He is batting .209 with five homers and 16 RBIs.
Roenicke didn't have a record in 11 appearances with the Reds. He had a 2.70 ERA in two stints with Cincinnati this season. Stewart was promoted to Triple-A Louisville during this season and had two saves in nine appearances.
In a separate deal, Cincinnati sent utilityman Jerry Hairston to the Yankees.
