LAS VEGAS -- The world champion Phillies are trying hard to improve their rotation and are simultaneously pursuing free agent pitchers Derek Lowe and Jamie Moyer, the longtime Phillie.

New Phillies GM Ruben Amaro is being "very aggressive,'' according to someone familiar with their dealings.

The Phillies are believed to be one of several teams to have made a significant offer for Lowe, whose popularity in this market is so strong that some interested teams, such as the Mets and Red Sox,  appear discouraged about their chances.

As for Moyer, it is believed the Phillies have offered him a two-year deal for about $14 million. Moyer, 46, is believed to be seeking about $18 million over the same period.
