Los Angeles Dodgers Claim Cliff Lee On Waivers

Rangers fans who were hoping for a Cliff Lee reunion in 2012 can officially stop dreaming. The Los Angeles Dodgers were awarded the winning claim on Philadelphia Phillies ace off of waivers, making them the only team that Lee can be traded to.

It had been speculated that Lee would pass through waivers, making him eligible to be traded to any team in baseball -- so long as he waived his no trade clause. Now, Lee can only be traded to the Dodgers, and that seems to be quite unlikely.

Texas' quest to add a top of the rotation pitcher will have to continue in the offseason, and for 2012, they'll have to make do with Ryan Dempster, Yu Darvish, Matt Harrison, Derek Holland and Scott Feldman.
