Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee has soreness in pitching elbow

The Associated Press

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee was temporarily shut down after experiencing soreness in his pitching elbow, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Sunday morning.

Lee had an MRI on Friday and was examined by Phillies team physician Michael Ciccotti. Amaro said there was "very mild inflammation" in Lee's elbow. Lee will seek a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews next week.

"You have to be alarmed, we have to be concerned because it's the same area and he feels something," Amaro said. "It's the same area, the same issues he had last year."

Lee, 36, was limited to 13 starts last season, when he had two stints on the disabled list. He was sidelined for the final two months of the year with a flexor pronator strain.
