Phillies right fielder Hunter Pence holds extra appeal since he's under team control for 2013, even if he could earn more than $14MM next year. The latest:
- The Giants are closing in on a deal for Pence, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
- The Pence to the Giants talk is pretty hot, tweets Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com.
- Just prior to the Dodgers wrapping up their deal for Shane Victorino, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick tweeted that the Phillies were still discussing a Pence deal with the Giants. They apparently are willing to trade two starting outfielders.
