  1. Roy Halladay following in Cliff Lee's footsteps

    Apr 22, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    Roy Halladay hurled a complete-game shutout Wednesday against Atlanta, allowing just four hits and one walk while improving to 4-0 with a 0.82 ERA on the season. In an odd coincidence the man Halladay was essentially traded for, Cliff Lee, also began his Phillies career with an identical 4-0 record and 0.82 ERA last season.…

  2. Cliff Lee scheduled to make M's debut April 30

    Apr 21, 2010, 9:46 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said on Wednesday that Cliff Lee will make a rehab start in Triple-A on Sunday.

  3. Cliff Lee's suspension dropped

    Apr 20, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    ESPN 710′s Shannon Drayer reports that Cliff Lee’s suspension for throwing a pitch over the head of Arizona’s Chris Snyder during a spring training game has been dropped by Major League Baseball. Lee’s defense, in a nutshell, was that he had been struggling with his command early in spring training anyway, and that he really…

  4. Cliff Lee to throw a simulated game today

    Apr 20, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee’s march back to the Mariners’ rotation continues today as he is set to throw a simulated game (a what?).  Assuming it all goes well, he’ll be off to Tacoma or someplace like it for a rehab start. The Mariners are penciling him in for a May 2nd start against the Rangers, but we’re…

  5. Cliff Lee appeals suspension, says injury led to poor control

    Apr 14, 2010, 9:33 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee got his day in court on Wednesday, and he certainly can’t complain about being shortchanged on time. The Mariners left-hander spoke with baseball executives for two-plus hours via conference call as he appealed the five-game suspension he was handed for throwing a pitch over the head of Arizona’s Chris Snyder during a spring…

  6. There's a chance Cliff Lee returns this month

    Apr 13, 2010, 9:03 PM EDT

    The Mariners were so encouraged by Cliff Lee’s 63-pitch bullpen session on Monday that they haven’t ruled out his return before the end of the month. Here’s what manager Don Wakamatsu told Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times: “Yeah, that’s our tendency right now…that’s a possibility,” Wakamatsu said. Lee’s return might be expedited if the…

  7. Cliff Lee won't be back this month

    Apr 9, 2010, 9:03 PM EDT

    If it wasn’t plainly obvious already, Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu made it official on Friday, telling Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times that Cliff Lee will not return from the disabled list until next month. “Safely, I think we’re looking at, hopefully, the first week in May,” he replied. “Again, anything before that, I don’t…

  8. Jimmy Rollins on keeping Cliff Lee: "I guess that's just a move the Yankees do"

    Apr 8, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins was on Dan Patrick’s radio show yesterday. He’s always a great interview. Very thoughtful. Despite the reputation he (unfairly) got early in his career, he’s pretty self-deprecating too. And, based on his comments when asked about why the Phillies traded Cliff Lee, very candid: That, I have no idea. I’m sure we could…

  9. Cliff Lee progressing towards bullpen session

    Apr 5, 2010, 10:11 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee, who was forced to begin the season on the disabled list due to a strained abdominal muscle, played catch for a second straight day on Monday without incident, according to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times. “It’s pretty good,” he said. “I felt absolutely nothing.” Now that he’s throwing without discomfort, the goal…

  10. Cliff Lee (abdomen) placed on disabled list

    Apr 4, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    Janie McCauley of the Associated Press (via NBCSports.com) reports that the Mariners have placed left-hander Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list to start the season as he continues his recovery from an abdominal strain. Lee enjoyed a pain-free throwing session late last week and is making progress toward a return, but the M’s have…

  11. Cliff Lee throws without pain; return to action still uncertain

    Apr 1, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    The good news is that Cliff Lee completed a 55-pitch throwing session yesterday without any of the pain in his abdomen that he had last week. The bad news is that neither Lee or the Mariners yet know when he can return and actually pitch in a game. In a chat yesterday the Seattle Times’…

  12. Curt Schilling rips the Phillies for not keeping Cliff Lee

    Apr 1, 2010, 7:57 AM EDT

    Curt Schilling was asked how he likes the Phillies this year. If you think his response was a diplomatic and conventional “I think they’ll be a good ballclub” kind of thing then you’re not familiar with Curt Schilling’s work: “I think trading Cliff Lee was the stupidest thing they’ve ever done, and they didn’t have…

  13. Cliff Lee is probably going on the DL

    Mar 26, 2010, 6:12 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee’s abdomen strain is not responding well to rest and a little throwing, so the team has decided to shut him down completely for five days.  It looks increasingly likely, then, that he will begin the season on the disabled list. According to the team, he would need a couple of bullpen sessions before…

  14. Cliff Lee still feeling pain

    Mar 24, 2010, 10:50 AM EDT

    Mariners’ starter Cliff Lee played catch yesterday and reported continued discomfort in his injured abdomen. The hope was that the few days of rest he’s had would have made things better, but apparently not. Don Wakamatsu put a positive spin on things, saying that he was pleased that Lee “did not feel any sharp pain…

  15. UPDATE: Cliff Lee has right abdominal strain

    Mar 19, 2010, 7:20 PM EDT

    Update: Larry Stone of the Seattle Times reports that Lee has a right lower abdominal strain. He was treated in Seattle on Friday be team doctor Edward Khalfayan. Lee underwent an ultra-sound exam and was given a platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection. He’s scheduled to be re-evaluated in one week, but as Geoff Baker of…

  16. Cliff Lee suspended for five games

    Mar 17, 2010, 6:48 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee has been suspended for five games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally throwing at Chris Snyder’s head during Monday’s game against the Diamondbacks. Seems a bit on the harsh side to me. I’m no fan of headhunting, but he didn’t hit him and I don’t recall Lee ever getting in trouble over…

  17. Cliff Lee tossed for throwing at D-backs catcher

    Mar 15, 2010, 6:45 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee, who was making his second spring start since returning from minor foot surgery, was tossed from Monday’s game against Arizona in the third inning for intentionally throwing at catcher Chris Snyder. Lee appeared to miss with his first attempt to send Snyder a message. On his second try, he threw one just over…

  18. Cliff Lee almost ready to take mound again after minor foot surgery

    Feb 18, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee gave Mariners fans a scare earlier this month by undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs from his left foot, but it looks like reports of the operation being “minor” will prove accurate. Lee is scheduled to throw his first bullpen session of the spring next Wednesday, which would actually put him slightly ahead…

  19. Cliff Lee has surgery to remove bone spur from foot

    Feb 8, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    That sound you just heard was the optimism of Mariners fans blowing up like the Hindenburg. OK, so that last sentence was way over the top. But there must be at least a little bit of concern in Seattle with the news from MLB.com that Cliff Lee underwent foot surgery on Friday. The surgery, which was…

  20. News Flash: Charlie Manuel would like to have had Cliff Lee in the rotation

    Jan 26, 2010, 5:50 PM EDT

    Cholly on the Cliff Lee trade: “Halladay is the best pitcher in baseball right now. Lee is a tad behind him. Of course it would’ve been nice to have both of them. It’d be good to have Halladay, Lee, Hamels. I’d be looking good. I might even be buying more expensive furniture than the Mrs.…

  21. Felix Hernandez and Cliff Lee need a nickname

    Jan 25, 2010, 3:20 PM EDT

    At least John McGrath of the Tacoma News-Tribune thinks they do. He starts with a couple of ideas: Is anybody pondering a nickname for the Mariners’ one-two punch? Hmmn. If Hernandez is “King Felix,” his counterpart should also own a title of distinction, something along the line of, say, “General Lee.” King Felix and General…

  22. Cliff Lee was stunned by the trade

    Dec 18, 2009, 10:56 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee thought he’d spend the rest of his baseball playing life in Philadelphia, saying “[a]t first I didn’t believe it. I thought we were working out an extension with the Phillies. I thought I would spend the rest of my career there.”  Ruben Amaro had other ideas, obviously, and it sounds like he was…

  23. Who's better: Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee?

    Dec 15, 2009, 2:55 PM EDT

    Clearly the Phillies’ decision to part with Cliff Lee and bring in Roy Halladay goes beyond each pitcher’s value for 2010. Halladay is apparently willing to sign a long-term deal to remain in Philadelphia while Lee is reportedly intent on testing the free agent market next offseason, which makes it more complicated than simply asking…

  24. Cliff Lee's agent: we didn't force a trade

    Dec 15, 2009, 1:20 PM EDT

    Early yesterday it was reported that Cliff Lee was demanding $23 million a year. A few hours later, Philly fans’ hopes of a 1-2 punch of Halladay and Lee were shattered, Lee was on his way west, and Mariners fans were jumping for absolute joy.  The conventional wisdom that has emerged: Lee’s extension demands were…

  25. Cliff Lee wants $23 million a year

    Dec 14, 2009, 12:45 PM EDT

    John Heyman reports that Cliff Lee is willing to do an extension with the Phillies, and that that wild idea of Rosenthal’s about Philly maybe trading Lee right now isn’t happening, but that if the Phillies want Lee beyond 2010, it’s gonna cost them:  $23 million a year.  No hometown discount. Lee thinks he’s worth…
