The Indians are calling up a pitcher named C.C. Lee -- seriously
The Indians are calling up a right-hander named C.C. Lee for this weekend's series. You read that correctly.
CC Sabathia won a Cy Young award for the Indians in 2007. Cliff Lee won a Cy Young award for the Indians in 2008. Now the Tribe is calling up a right-hander named C.C. Lee for their weekend series against the Royals. No, really.
In this case, C.C. is short for
Baseball America, in its 2013 prospect handbook, ranked Lee as the team's 10th-best prospect before the season, saying he is a "potential big-league set-up man" thanks to unusually high velocity from a low arm slot. This will be his first taste of the big leagues.
I'm sure I'm not alone, but I can't help but wonder what other prospects the Indians are hiding in the minors. Manny Belle? Grady Thome? Bartolo Pestano? There's bound to be more. C.C. Lee is a name of Cleveland Indians destiny.
