Cliff Lee Rejoins the Philadelphia Phillies

According to multiple sources, free-agent pitcher Cliff Lee has reached a preliminary agreement on a contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Pencil the Phillies in for 105-110 wins in 2011 and a trip to the World Series where they’ll take on the Boston Red Sox. I’m calling it right now! Their pick up of Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford should put them over the top in the American League.

From the Associated Press:

The deal is subject to the 32-year-old left-hander passing a physical, the person said on condition of anonymity because the agreement was not final.

The New York Yankees and Texas Rangers received telephone calls Monday night telling them they were out of the running, two separate people familiar with those team’s negotiations said, also on condition of anonymity.

Lee 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner turned down longer and more lucrative offers to return to the team he helped reach the 2009 World Series after a midseason trade from Cleveland.
