Phillies 'actively shopping' Domonic Brown, according to report

In the wake of Roy Halladay's retirement press conference, the Phillies will obviously need some starting pitching. They are prepared to make a trade to get some, and that trade, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, could include Domonic Brown.

After 26-year-old Brown's breakout power season in 2013, which he finished with 27 home runs, tied for fourth in the National League, the plan would be to sell high, with Brown's value having never been higher. If the Phillies can get a "controllable" starter in return, they appear ready to ship out their left fielder.

Brown finished 2013 hitting .272 with an .818 OPS, playing as close to a full season as he ever has (139 games). He accumulated 2.5 WAR with 83 RBI, 21 doubles, and four triples.
