Recommendation: "With obliques, you just don't know how long they're going to take," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "He's shown improvement. We're hopeful that he's only going to miss a couple of starts." For now, the Phillies do not plan to send Lee for an MRI. He is eligible to come off the disabled list May 4, but likely will be sidelined beyond that date.
