Phils scouting Yankees-Mariners series

Phils scouting Yankees-Mariners series

CINCINNATI -- The Phillies are in the market for starting pitching, and they had a scout at Tuesday's game between the Yankees and Mariners at Yankee Stadium in New York, where Mariners left-hander Cliff Lee was pitching.

The Phillies traded Lee to the Mariners in December following the Roy Halladay trade because they said they needed prospects to replenish the farm system. It is believed the Phillies do not have enough Minor League talent to re-acquire Lee, but they could be covering their bases if they feel they can make a move.
