Cliff Lee missed the entire 2015 season due to a torn flexor tendon, but it was reported last week that he has been medically cleared and intends to make a comeback if the right opportunity comes along. Well, it sounds like the former Cy Young Award winner is going to have a lot of choices.
CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that Lee is currently drawing interest from 15 teams. It’s hard to imagine that any team will give him guaranteed money at this point, but just about everybody should be in on him if all it takes is a spring training invite to find out what he has left in the tank.
Lee hasn’t appeared in a major league game since July 31, 2014 and turned 37 this past August.
