Cliff Lee Goes on the DL

“It’s never good news whenever you lose one of your No. 1 pitchers, but it’s pretty mild,” Amaro said.

“An MRI on Cliff Lee’s sore left elbow revealed a Grade 1-2 strain of the flexor tendon, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Tuesday night,” CSN Philly reports.  “Amaro called the strain ‘mild.’ Lee was placed on the 15-day disabled list. There was no immediate word on who would fill the left-hander’s spot in the rotation when it comes up Saturday.”
