|(1/16/15) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. said Friday that pitcher Cliff Lee is a week to a week-and-a-half away from throwing off a mound, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Lee was cleared to begin his offseason throwing program in November and remains on track to be ready by spring training. He went 4-5 with a 3.65 ERA and 72:12 K:BB ratio in 81 1/3 innings over 13 starts in 2014.
Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee beginning offseason throwing program

|(12/9/14) Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee has started his offseason throwing program and is expected to be ready for the beginning of spring training, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Monday.
"He's got no issues," Amaro said. "He's in his normal program now. I think he probably won't get on the mound until January."
Lee, who injured his left elbow in July, is due $25 million in 2015, plus a $27.5 million club option in 2016. Lee threw 81 1/3 innings in 2014 with a 3.65 ERA.
Phillies SP Cliff Lee cleared to start offseason throwing program
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/24/14) Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee, who missed the final two months of the 2014 season due to a left elbow strain, has been cleared to begin his offseason throwing program, according to CSNPhilly.com.
General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Lee would begin his offseason throwing program next Monday and be ready for the start of spring training.
"Originally we planned to have him throwing in mid-November, but we moved it back because he had been sick for about a week," Amaro said. "His strength is back now. His elbow feels good. He’s pain-free and doing great, ready to begin his normal throwing program on Dec. 1."
The Phillies are hopeful Lee, who was limited to 13 starts in 2014, is past his elbow problems.
"We think he’s over it," Amaro said. "He’s been able to do all his strength work and he hasn’t felt it at all. We’ll know more when he starts throwing."
Phillies SP Cliff Lee feeling good, ready for early throwing program
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee's agent, Darek Braunecker, told the New York Post the veteran left-handed pitcher is feeling good and about to begin a throwing program earlier than normal. Lee should be ready for spring training after missing the final two months of the 2014 season due to an elbow strain.
|2014 summary: After years of being both a workhorse and an ace, Cliff Lee proved to be neither in 2014, as he made two trips to the disabled list with a left elbow strain. Lee was first sidelined with the injury in May after he had been pitching through discomfort for a month. He came back for three starts just before the July 31 trading deadline, and after reinjuring himself, he hit the disabled list for good, missing the rest of the season. Lee went 4-5 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 13 starts.|
Playing time status: Lee did not have surgery on his ailing elbow, but he is reportedly on track to be ready for the beginning of Phillies spring training.
2015 outlook: Because Lee's first return from his elbow injury was short-lived, owners should have some trepidation about his health status going into this season. Whereas the lefty has long typified the blue-chip, low-risk ace worthy of an early-round pick, he is now more of a high-risk, high-reward type. Lee should come at something of a discount, but the possibility of a sub-3.00 ERA and sub-1.10 WHIP makes him worth targeting as a top 25 starter.
