Carlos Lee Put On Waivers By Marlins

The Miami Marlins have put Carlos Lee on waivers, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Rosenthal reported Lee as being one of several star players on the August waiver wire:

The Marlins acquired Lee from the Houston Astros less than a month ago on July 5. Lee was expected to add a big bat as the Marlins tried to salvage a once-promising season in their new park. But the June woes gave way to more of the same in July and Miami sold off a slew of stars, including Hanley Ramirez and Gaby Sanchez.

It's unlikely a team places a waiver claim on Lee, making him available for trade to any interested partner. As Fish Stripes explains, however, Lee can invoke a no-trade clause -- something he reportedly did before the deadline when Miami thought they had worked out a deal to send the slugger to the Yankees.
