The Philadelphia Phillies continue to talk to other teams, including the Cleveland Indians, Pittsburgh Pirates, Cincinnati Reds and Tampa Bay Rays, about center fielder Shane Victorino, and their asking price has been a young but proven setup reliever, plus a young outfielder or third baseman, reports Jayson Stark of ESPN:

The Phillies continue to talk to a bunch of teams about Shane Victorino, although their recent hot streak has left them more up in the air than ever about whether to trade a core player such as Victorino, whom they can't easily replace. Their asking price has been a young but proven setup reliever, plus a young outfielder or third baseman.

But to get Victorino moved, said an official of one club, they're going to have to cut that price in half. Other teams expect them to narrow their focus eventually to just young relievers. Among the names we hear they've asked about: Pittsburgh’s Brad Lincoln, Tampa Bay’s Wade Davis, Cleveland’s Vinnie Pestano and Cincinnati’s Logan Ondrusek.

Stark says the Phillies have asked the Pirates about right-hander Brad Lincoln, the Rays about right-hander Wade Davis, the Indians about right-hander Vinnie Pestano and the Reds about right-hander Logan Ondrusek.

The Reds reportedly turned down a deal that would have sent Ondrusek to the Phillies for Victorino earlier in the week. With the Phillies recent resurgence, Stark notes that the club is more "up in the air" about whether or not they should trade core players such as Victorino.
