Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan is reporting that the Phillies are actively shopping All-Star outfielder Domonic Brown for "controllable starting pitching." Passan reports that the Phillies mindset is to sell high on the former top prospect.
Brown, 26, had a breakout year for the Phillies in 2013 batting .272/.324/.494 with 27 home runs and 83 RBIs while earning his first All-Star appearance. He was one of the few power bats the Phillies had in their lineup last season so Brown would leave a major hole in the middle of the Phillies lineup if he's moved.
If Brown gets moved, I would not be surprised if the Phillies upped their efforts to acquire outfielder Nelson Cruz.
