According to multiple sources, Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg, president Nolan Ryan and general manager Jon Daniels flew to Little Rock Monday to meet with free agent left-hander Cliff Lee.
Greenberg declined comment, and Daniels is in meetings in Orlando for the annual general manager's meetings.
The meeting with Lee lasted approximately two hours.
The Yankees also met with the Lee, the most coveted pitcher on the free agent market, last week. The Washington Nationals are also interested in Lee, who was traded to the Rangers in July.
Darek Braunecker, Lee's agent, did not return phone calls. Braunecker said last week he didn't expect a deal to get done until December.
