|Cliff Lee out for year, doesn't need surgery |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/7/14) Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee will miss the remainder of the season while recovering a from a Grade 2 flexor pronator strain, but the injury will not require surgery, MLB.com reports.
"We hope to get him into a throwing program in October or November," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Wednesday night. "But right now he needs to rest."
Lee will rest at home for two weeks before rejoining the team early next month to be re-evaluated. The team hopes he'll be good to go by spring training.

(8/1/14) Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee will be evaluated by team doctors Saturday and will have extensive tests taken following this weekend's series, reports the Philadelphia Daily News.
Lee's season may be over after he suffered a recurrence of the strained left flexor pronator, but the team wants to have further tests taken before making that determination. He will have an MRI taken on the elbow, possibly as early as Monday.

|Cliff Lee diagnosed with elbow strain, season hangs in jeopardy |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/31/14) Phillies starting pitcher Cliff Lee was diagnosed with a recurrence of a left flexor pronator strain, according to Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.
Lee missed two months of the season because of the injury and is now likely done for the year. He'll likely go through further tests in hopes of dodging a major injury.
The left-hander exited the game with a team trainer after making a gesture toward his elbow in the bottom of the third inning. He owns a 3.65 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP over 13 starts (81 1/3 innings).
|Cliff Lee continued to be Mr. Reliable for Fantasy owners in 2013. The 35-year-old left-hander won a team-high 14 games for the Phillies, while posting a 2.87 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 31 starts. He surpassed 200 innings for the sixth straight season, while becoming a fourth-time All-Star and finishing sixth in the NL Cy Young race. There was even a stretch last season where Lee went 12 starts without a loss from early May through early July, going 8-0 with a 2.40 ERA in that span. Lee was also outstanding down the stretch when the Phillies were well out of the playoff picture. He went 4-2 with a 1.98 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in his last eight starts. He had 71 strikeouts in 59 innings in that span, including double-digit strikeout performances in three of five September starts. Lee, who finished as the fourth-highest scoring Fantasy starting pitcher, averaged 33.2 Fantasy points over the final five scoring periods. Even in his mid-30s, Lee is pitching like a player in his prime. He remains a Fantasy ace and early round selection.
