ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that the Reds and Phillies "continue trade talks" involving Marlon Byrd.

He's making $8 million this season and in 2015 and has an $8 million club/vesting option for 2016.

Byrd is also drawing interest from the Mariners, though those talks have reportedly stalled and Seattle is also on Byrd's limited no-trade list. Cincinnati is not on the list.

Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports that the Mariners have had serious discussions with the Phillies about acquiring outfielder Marlon Byrd.

There were reports earlier in the week that the Mariners had scouted the 36-year-old slugger. He's in the first year of a two-year, $16 million contract and has already indicated that he'd be willing to waive his no-trade clause. The Mariners are in desperate need for a right-handed power bat, and Byrd seems like a very logical fit.

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Byrd was the only source of offense for the Phillies, as his second- and fourth-inning home runs off Braves starter Aaron Harang were the only runs his club scored on the afternoon despite banging out 13 hits and walking twice. With the Phillies now 10 games under .500, Byrd may be wearing a new uniform by the end of July. He's slashing .268/.319/.487 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI.
