The Phillies are dangling pitcher Vance Worley as a trade chip and would be willing to include pitching prospect Trevor May in the right deal, a baseball source tells CSNPhilly.com.
The willingness to trade these two pitchers reflects the Phillies' need to strengthen their outfield as the free-agent market dwindles. The Phils made offers to centerfielders B.J. Upton and Angel Pagan, but both signed elsewhere. The Phils don't seem enthusiastic about jumping into the high-priced sweepstakes for Josh Hamilton. Ditto for Michael Bourn. Shane Victorino is another free agent, but it doesn't appear as if the Phillies are eager for a reunion with their former centerfielder.
