The Reds and Phillies remain engaged in trade talks that involve former All-Star outfielder Marlon Byrd leaving Philadelphia for Cincinnati, Jim Bowden of ESPN tweeted Tuesday night.
Byrd, who turns 37 in August, is still at the top of his game after an impressive 2013 campaign. On the season, he has 19 home runs over 98 games. He's due $8 million this season and again next year, and then has an $8 million club/vesting option for 2016.
