Phillies | Willing to pay Cliff Lee's contract

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 10:52:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee could be traded next month, since the team is willing to pay down some of his backloaded contract to facilitate a trade if they can get the right prospects. Lee is guaranteed around $48 million through next year, and the Phillies would likely have to pay a fair amount of his remaining contract to work out a trade.

Phillies | Market quiet for big names

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:42:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett, RP Jonathan Papelbon, and 1B Ryan Howard haven't attracted much serious interest in trade talks. Howard and Lee have almost no market, and Burnett and Papelbon's allure has been limited. The latter two have unattractive player options that are limiting interest. All four may be candidates for an August trade after the non-waiver deadline passes.

Fantasy Tip: Philly's efforts to blow things up aren't going so well, and fantasy players may have to wait a few more weeks for significant changes to happen.

Phillies | Cliff Lee's return spoiled

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 20:53:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee (elbow) allowed six runs and 12 hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss Monday, July 21, against the San Francisco Giants. He had been 5-0 with a 0.88 ERA in six career games against the Giants previous to Monday's outing. If he show's he is healthy and pitches effectively, he is a prime candidate for a trade before the July 31 non-waiver deadline.

Fantasy Tip: A move to a contender could rejuvenate Lee and his fantasy value, but he needs to stay healthy and pitch well first.
