Phillies Close to Acquiring Lee
According to sources, the Phillies are very close to trading for Indians pitcher, Cliff Lee. Carlos Carrasco, Jason Donald, and Lou Marson have all been pulled from their game tonight. These are three players who essentially could be involved in a trade for a pitcher. The talks for Cliff Lee have heated up as the talks for Roy Halladay have slowed down, and it looks like Lee could be a Phillie very shortly. Many people around the Indians club believe a trade could happen at any time now. According to Ken Rosenthal at Foxsports.com, "Class A right-hander Jason Knapp is the centerpiece of the Phillies' offer for Lee". The Phillies are still involved in talks to with Seattle for Jarrod Washburn. If the talks break down and the Phillies don't get a starting pitcher, look for the Phillies to make a push for the reliever from Baltimore, George Sherill.
