CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Domonic Brown's name came up in trade talks with the Astros this offseason, but the Phillies "aren't eager to trade an outfielder."

It seems like we've been waiting forever for Brown to get a starting job, but he has a prime opportunity this season, especially with Delmon Young (ankle) likely to start the year on the DL. The 25-year-old has batted just .236/.315/.388 with 12 homers over 492 plate appearances for the Phils but still has some intriguing upside.
