Local Player Lueke in Cliff Lee Deal
We have reported on here before the statistics of former Scott High School and Northern Kentucky University pitcher Josh Lueke. Last week, Lueke was involved in the trade from Texas to Seattle for former Cy Young Award winner Cliff Lee. Lueke this season is 3-2 with a 2.11 ERA in 38.1 IP he has 62 k's and just 10 walks with a very solid 1.04 WHIP. It appears that Lueke was one of the players attached to help sweeten the deal and pushed Texas over the edge to acquire Lee. Congratulations to him and good luck with Seattle.
