Second baseman Ian Kinsler said that he was informed by Cliff Lee that the Rangers visited the free-agent left-hander for a second time Tuesday in Arkansas. Kinsler first revealed the Rangers-Lee meeting during a radio program earlier today and confirmed it via telephone with the Star-Telegram.
Kinsler said that Lee didn't not say if the Rangers had made him an offer.
The Rangers made an initial visit to Lee at his home outside Little Rock on Nov. 15. Lee said shortly after Game 5 of the World Series that he would like to return to the Rangers on a long-term basis, but he would have to go through the process of free agency for the first time and see which team makes him the best offer. The Rangers are believed to be the front-runners, along with the New York Yankees, to acquire Lee for a nine-figure, mulit-year deal.
