Eight days before the trade deadline, the Phillies continue to try to get a contract extension hammered out with Cole Hamels.

"They're trying -- actively trying," a person with knowledge of the situation told CSNPhilly.com on Monday afternoon. "They're making offers."

Hamels will be eligible for free agency at the end of the season. If the Phillies are unable to sign him to an extension before next Tuesday's trade deadline, they will likely look to trade him for a package of young talent.
