Over the weekend, the Phillies also placed Cliff Lee on waivers. The Dodgers got the claiming rights to Lee, but no deal was made. Lee will at least finish out the 2012 season as a Phillie.
CSNPhilly.com's John Gonzalez reports that Lee said the news of him being placed on waivers was "way overblown."
