Phillies P Cliff Lee (forearm) won't throw for 3 or 4 more weeks
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/17/15) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said pitcher Cliff Lee won't begin throwing again until at least three or four more weeks, according to The News Journal.
Lee was in Philadelphia on Tuesday and saw a doctor. He's on the 60-day disabled list with a left forearm strain.
Phillies' Cliff Lee shut down, placed on 60-day DL with forearm strain
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/16/15) Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee was unable to throw Sunday or Monday, and was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a left forearm strain -- the same injury that had the veteran left-hander on the shelf twice last season. He will be shut down indefinitely, and brought back to Philadelphia periodically to be evaluated.
Although Lee was recommended by doctors to have surgery, he and the Phillies have mutually decided to try for the third time to take a non-surgical approach to his rehab, with the hopes to prolong his career. Surgery would keep the 36-year-old out for the entirety of the season, and likely end his career.
Phillies' Cliff Lee doesn't throw Sunday, feels 'pretty good'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/15/15) Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee (elbow) didn't throw Sunday but indicated that his injured elbow feels "pretty good," MLB.com reports.
"[Lee] said his arm felt pretty good," pitching coach Bob McClure said. "He just doesn't want to push it. That's what he told me."
Lee is dealing with a torn commor flexor tendon in his elbow but is attempting to pitch through the injury. If he can't, it may signal the end of his career, as surgery would sideline him for the entire season.
Nothing new yet with Cliff Lee, still pitching with elbow discomfort
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said Friday starting pitcher Cliff Lee threw again Thursday, per MLB.com. However, Proefrock didn't have a positive update, as he said the discomfort in Lee’s left elbow remained.
Phillies' Cliff Lee throws Wednesday, but discomfort lingers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee, who has a small tear in the common flexor tendon of his throwing arm, threw a bullpen session Wednesday.
Although, Lee did appear to feel slightly encouraged after throwing Wednesday.
"It does feel a little better," he said. "There's still something there, but it's not bad. So if it stays the way it is, I think I will be good. Time will tell."
|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 re-injuring 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, and so, perhaps predictably, the soreness returned at the start of spring training. An MRI revealed a small tear in the common flexor tendon of his throwing arm, which would normally require surgery, but at this stage of his career, Lee would prefer to try and pitch through it. He's already on the 60-day DL, so in a best-case scenario, he's looking at a midseason return.
2015 outlook: Given Lee's injury situation, you can't draft him with confidence this season. Though he still has ace potential when healthy, the 36-year-old is looking like no better than a late-round stash and may not be drafted at all in standard mixed leagues.
