Rangers meet with Cliff Lee's agent

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Rangers met for about 30 minutes with Darek Braunecker, Cliff Lee's agent, late Wednesday morning, the agent confirmed.

"We've had productive meetings," said Braunecker, who added he wasn't sure if he'd meet with the Rangers again before leaving Orlando either tonight or early Thursday. "They're still in the mix."

Earlier Wednesday, Braunecker said a club had been eliminated from the Lee sweepstakes. The agent would not comment on whether the Rangers made an offer at the meeting. But it's about that time when offers should start pouring in.

Stay tuned.
