Tom Verducci, a baseball insider for Sports Illustrated and the MLB Network, reports that a source has told him that the Philadelphia Phillies have been "very aggressive" in their pursuit of Roy Halladay, and are the front-runners to acquire the right-hander.

The Phillies are looking for the players that Toronto wants for Halladay, and are putting together a package, even if it means they have to add another team into the mix, according to Verducci's source.

This coming one day after FOXSports.com reported that the Phils are offering a package that includes J.A. Happ and either Dom Brown or Reggie Taylor.
