Lee Still Feels Discomfort in Elbow

Cliff LeeThe Phillies had hoped Cliff Lee could begin his throwing program as early as last week, but the wait continues.

“It’s still there a little bit,” Lee said today about the discomfort in his left elbow. “It’s getting better.”

Lee has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 19 with a strained elbow. He said he plans to join the team on its upcoming six-game road trip to Washington and Cincinnati, which begins Tuesday night against the Nationals at Nationals Park. He is hopeful he can begin his throwing program on the road.

“There’s a chance that could happen on this road trip,” Ryne Sandberg said.


Pitch him ’til his arm falls off. What the hell are they paying this guy for ? Meanwhile the fans are paying hundreds for a simple game attendance. By the time he comes off DL he’ll be less than the mediocre pitcher he is. He never brought anything substantial to the team. Let’s face it, they suck. The only worthwhile thing about the whole team is the Phanatic.
