According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Los Angeles Dodgers are discussing the possibility of trading for Indians pitcher Cliff Lee-
The Dodgers like Cliff Lee. They have discussed him internally. But their chances of meeting the Indians’ price for the ace left-hander are slim, according to major-league sources. The only way the Indians will trade Lee, sources say, is if they are offered a potential top-of-the-rotation starter at the level of the Braves’ Tommy Hanson or Red Sox’s Clay Buchholz.
This is the first report I’ve heard this season about the Tribe even taking calls on Cliff Lee. Remember, the Indians have a club option on Lee for next season at $8 million. They certainly do not have to start looking for trade partners at this point, and if they did pull the trigger on a deal, it would have to be an UNBELIEVABLE type of offer. Do the Dodgers even have those kinds of prospects?
With the Indians falling further out of contention, we are going to start hearing more Cliff Lee rumors going forward.
