The Phillies will listen to offers on starting pitcher Cliff Lee, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports. It doesn't sound like GM Ruben Amaro Jr. is in any rush to move Lee, however. "Although we don't have any desire to move a guy like that because we view him as someone who will be key to our future, I am a businessperson as well and I'll be a good listener," Amaro says. There's another Lee-related story line to watch as we approach the trade deadline -- as Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer notes (via Twitter), Lee has been scratched from his start on Saturday due to a stiff neck
I fully expect Chase/Lee/Young/Ruiz/Paps to be out of here by the end of the deadline(maybe not all, but a majority). I wonder what teams would be desperate for Lee. Boston/Texas/St Louis?
Boston you would think we would want their young outfielder coming back(Bradley I believe) The other teams, I don't know anything about their farm systems, as I have not followed baseball as much in recent years.
The Phillies and Rangers have had discussions about a trade shipping infielder Michael Young back to Texas, reports ESPN's Jayson Stark. We learned yesterday from CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman that the Rangers were considering Young internally. Talks have been "exploratory" in nature, says Stark, and the clubs are not close to an agreement.
