Mariners trade Cliff Lee to the Rangers.

Hat tip -

We all knew that the Seattle Mariners would trade All-Star pitcher Cliff Lee this afternoon, but none of us knew where the former Cleveland Indians ace would be going this time around. That is until earlier this evening, when the MLB trade deadline HotStove warmed up.

The Seattle Mariners received:

Justin Smoak (MLB).
Blake Beavan (AA).
Matthew Lawson (AA).
Josh Lueke (AA).

The Texas Rangers received:

Cliff Lee (MLB).
Mark Lowe (MLB).

Great news for the Texas Rangers in the present, the Seattle Mariners in the future, and Cliff Lee* for at least three more months.

Any thoughts?

* - This will be the fourth MLB Club that Cliff Lee has pitched for, and he was originally drafted by the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals in 2000, but was traded to the Cleveland Indians in 2002.
