Cliff Lee Could Be Headed Back to AL Central

Around the trading deadline last year, Cleveland Indians fans were saddened to see their second straight Cy Young winner, Cliff Lee, dealt to the Philadelphia Phillies.


One year later, Indians fans could be seeing a lot more of Lee again…as a member of the Minnesota Twins. According to reports, the Twins have discussed giving up the top two prospects in their organization for Lee (and perhaps other players).


Amidst a three-way battle for first place, acquiring Lee is the type of deal that can help the Twins push past the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox. Heck, it might even be enough to overcome the Indians’ recent surge.
