Reports on Lee’s Elbow Good So Far

Cliff LeeIf the Phillies cannot trade Cole Hamels before Opening Day, they could have two aces to trade before the July 31 Trade Deadline.

Cliff Lee missed much of last season with an injured left elbow, but Ruben Amaro Jr. said last night that Lee has thrown three or four times off a mound recently without any issues. Amaro said Lee is expected to be ready to go when Spring Training opens next month.

That is significant because if Lee can stay healthy and pitch effectively, he could become a valuable trade chip come July.

“There’s plenty of teams out there that need pitching, especially when you talk about top of the rotation left-handers,” Amaro said. “They don’t fall off trees. I know there are going to be more than one or two contenders out there.”

Because I believe everything Amaro says….

just roll over and die before the season even starts. Forget how they young guys might do, the young talent wasnt what won then the world series or anything.
