The Phillies and Orioles are talking seriously about a deal involving Jim Thome, a source tells Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com. Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. recently disclosed that he's open to moving the veteran if there is a deal that makes sense for both the slugger and the team.
After Thome's recent strong showing at designated hitter during interleague play, he is on board with joining an American League club in need of a bat. The Phillies have been reportedly been shopping Thome to teams in need of a DH and a team like the O's would fit the bill.
