LEHIGH VALLEY — Carlos Carracso has been scratched from his start in Triple-A Lehigh Valley. There is no indication that he is hurt. Jason Donald and Lou Marson have been taken out of the starting lineup as well.
Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal is reporting that a deal will happen between the Phillies and Indians, sending Cliff Lee to Philadelphia for Carrasco, Marson, and Donald, along with pitching prospect Jason Knapp.
Knapp, who will turn 19 on August 31 has been compared to Roy Halladay by one scout, who called the 6-foot-5, 215-pound righty a “Halladay clone.”
The deal reportedly isn’t imminent, but could happen before the Phils game in Arizona tonight.
