Cliff Lee was claimed on waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the teams have three days to try to work out a trade. The Phillies and Dodgers will talk, but th Phillies people have suggested to others they don’t see a trade for Lee as very likely. If a trade can’t be worked out, the Phillies would then pull back Lee and he wouldn’t be traded this season. If a player is put on waivers a second time, he can’t be pulled back.
Late July means baseball trade rumors, and with new Dodgers ownership willing to add payroll, the Dodgers figure to be one of the most active teams as the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline looms.
