MLB Trade Rumors: Carlos Lee Considering Waiving No-Trade Clause

The Los Angeles Dodgers are interested in trading for him. The Houston Astros are interested in dealing him. But Carlos Lee has all of the power due to a no-trade clause that he'd have to waive in order for anything to happen between these two teams.

It was initially reported that Lee was interested in being moved, but those reports then morphed into Lee having no intention of waiving his no-trade because of how deep his roots are in Houston. But according to ESPN, Lee is said to be interested in hearing what else might be out there for him:

When Lee arrived at Wrigley Field for a game against the Cubs on Saturday, he said, according to MLB.com: "I met with Jeff this morning and he told me what's going on and let's see what happens."

"I just told Jeff I want to see my options. I just want to wait and see what my options are," Lee added.

Lee is in the final year of a six-year, $100 million dollar deal and the Astros are currently in fifth place in the NL Central while the Dodgers are in second place in the NL West.
