The Yankees may be on the verge of acquiring slugger Carlos Lee from the Brewers. Former Sox executive Lee Thomas, who is now an assistant to Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin, was seen in Trenton, N.J., on Friday night scouting Yankees pitching prospect Philip Hughes, who allowed one hit and struck out eight for the Double-A Thunder.
Carlos Lee. His nickname is “El Caballo.” Great year in 2004. Pretty good season last year and this year, to date. Defensively, he’s challenged. He’ll be a free agent after this season. If I recall correctly, he’s been a good citizen with the Brewers. And, he’s durable.
That all said, is he worth Philip Hughes?
