Phillies | Cliff Lee could be trade bait

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 08:41:46 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies are expected to listen to trade offers for SP Cliff Lee if the team is out of contention at the end of this month. Other clubs have said that they expect the Phillies to aggressively try to trade Lee, who is signed through 2015 and has a minimum of $50 million left on his contract over the next year and a half. The Phillies also reportedly are willing to eat a big portion of his salary if they receive the right pieces in a trade.

Fantasy Tip: A trade to a contender at this point would likely boost Lee's fantasy value at least a little bit, depending on where he lands.

Phillies | Cliff Lee's outing cut short by rain

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 08:30:08 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee's (elbow) rehab outing with Single-A Clearwater was cut short at 24 pitches due to rain Sunday, July 6. Lee was planning on throwing 70 pitches in the outing. Lee was clocked between 89 and 91 mph on his fastball, and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said the team liked what they saw. Lee will make two more rehab starts and is targeting a return from the disabled list on July 19.

Fantasy Tip: The velocity on Lee's fastball during his rehab outing is an encouraging sign that he's progressing nicely. If he doesn't have any setbacks in his next two starts, we should see him back just after the All-Star break.

Phillies | Cliff Lee, Carlos Ruiz to return after break

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 16:20:22 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee (elbow) and C Carlos Ruiz (concussion) will not return until after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: We weren't expecting either to be miraculously ready before the break, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. Both players' injuries are a bit worrisome, though, especially Ruiz's, since concussions are often tricky to return from.
