According to John Heyman of CBS Sports, Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee was claimed on waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers but is unlikely to be traded. This comes on the heels of the news that the Phillies traded Joe Blanton to the Dodgers. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. would not confirm that Lee was claimed, but told reporters that he "is not going anywhere." The Phillies now have a few options. They can pull Lee off waivers (and lose their chance to do so again for the rest of the season), they could pull him off and work out a trade with the Dodgers, or they can just let him walk.
