Fox Sports Arkansas’ very own Wess Moore, host of the daily radio show Game On, had the opportunity to talk with Darek Braunecker, agent of Arkansas’ home grown Cliff Lee, to find out if Cliff would be making a come back this season.
You can listen in to the interview here:
The certainty of Cliff’s return is still a big question mark after sitting out the entire 2015 season with an injury. Some have speculated that in order for Cliff to return he needs a “perfect fit” as Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe recently pointed out:
Cliff Lee is still something of a question mark for some teams, as it’s unclear as to whether Lee will be able to pitch on Opening Day or around midseason. Agent Darek Braunecker recently said his client would be 100 percent ready if he decided to pitch in a showcase for teams, though an AL official tells Cafardo that he didn’t know much about how Lee was progressing after missing all of 2015 with a flexor tendon tear that wasn’t surgically repaired. Two NL officials tell Cafardo that Lee is looking for a big base salary and a spot on a contending team, which ties into Braunecker’s previous comment about how Lee needs a “perfect fit” in order to return to pitching.
