UPDATE: Dodgers engaged in talks to acquire Astros first baseman Carlos Lee

UPDATE: Do we have a case of mistaken identity? FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal says that Buster Olney has the wrong Lee included in this proposal.

Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports the same thing:

This makes more sense if L.A. is looking for power, since Lowrie is far from a proven commodity. And it seems awfully premature for the Dodgers to be giving up on Zach Lee.
