KPIX, a  television station in San Francisco, is reporting that the Giants "have a deal in place" for Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence. Giants vice president Bobby Evans reportedly denied the report in a text message, saying that there's "no truth to the rumor."

But sources tell Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com that, although no agreeement has been reached, the Giants and the Phillies are indeed discussing a deal.

Pence, 30, is hitting .268 with 17 home runs and 59 RBI. Should there be a trade, the Phillies could bring up Domonic Brown from the minor leagues.

The Phillies are expected to become sellers after a weekend sweep at the hands of the Atlanta Braves effectively eliminated them from playoff contention. The MLB trade deadline is 4 p.m. Tuesday.
