NY Post: Yankees on verge of landing Cliff Lee

Joel Sherman made a fantastic get this morning, and is reporting that the Yankees are on the verge of acquiring left-handed ace Cliff Lee from the Mariners for a package that includes Jesus Montero, Thunder second baseman David Adams and more as yet unnamed prospects from a deep Yankees system.

With Triple-A this season, Montero's struggles are being made very public. Still he's turned it on quite a bit of late, and is sporting a .253/.329/.737 line with six homers and 35 RBIs. Still, he's just 21 and has loads of potential. Plus, with Austin Romine, J.R. Murphy, Gary Sanchez and Kyle Higashioka all still in the system, the Yankees have a major catching surplus.

David Adams, who has been on the disabled list since May with a sprained ankle, is also rumored to be part of the deal. As far as the Thunder's season goes, the Yankees could easily (and deservingly) promote Corban Joseph to Trenton.
