Player Notes
Phillies transferred LHP Cliff Lee from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Advice: It's a paper move, as Lee will be eligible to return on July 18 and is slated to rejoin the Phillies' rotation on July 19. The veteran left-hander allowed three earned runs over four innings Wednesday at High-A Clearwater in his second rehab start. He'll make one more rehab appearance before returning.

Cliff Lee (elbow) allowed three earned runs over four innings Wednesday at High-A Clearwater.

Advice: Lee needed just 32 pitches to get through the first three frames, fanning two and inducing six groundouts. He then got knocked around in the fourth inning, but some of the blame goes to the High-A Clearwater defenders. The veteran left-hander is on track to return from the disabled list shortly after the All-Star beak. He has been out since mid-May because of a left elbow strain.

Cliff Lee (elbow) will make his next minor league rehab start Wednesday with High-A Clearwater.

Advice: Lee was only able to throw two innings Sunday during his first rehab start because of rain, so he'll pitch on short rest. The southpaw remains on track to rejoin the Phillies shortly after the All-Star break.

Cliff Lee (elbow) threw two scoreless innings in his rehab debut Sunday at High-A Clearwater.

Advice: Lee was hoping to pitch three or four innings, but the game was cut short by rain. "I felt fine," Lee told reporters after his outing. "I threw two cutters and everything else was a fastball. You could see the weather coming, so I was trying to hurry." He should be back in the Phillies' starting rotation shortly after the All-Star break.

Advice: Lee will make his first start at High-A Clearwater. He threw 60 pitches over a three-inning simulated game on Tuesday and woke up Wednesday with no physical issues. The ace left-hander has been on the disabled list since mid-May because of a strained elbow. He should be back in the Phillies' rotation after the All-Star break.

Cliff Lee (elbow) is on track to begin a rehab assignment at High-A Clearwater on Sunday.

Advice: He'll officially be cleared if he wakes up with no discomfort on Wednesday, a day after throwing a 60-pitch live batting practice session. Lee has been sidelined since mid-May with a flexor strain in his left elbow but should rejoin the Phillies' rotation in a couple weeks if he can avoid setbacks.

Cliff Lee (elbow) threw 60 pitches to live hitters on Tuesday afternoon and felt fine.

Advice: Lee could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment if he wakes up with no abnormal discomfort on Wednesday. The veteran left-hander is expected to rejoin the Phillies' starting rotation after the All-Star break and he could be a big target for contending teams at the July 31 trade deadline.
