Lee expects to return Wednesday vs. Mets

Lee expects to return Wednesday vs. Mets
MLB.com
WASHINGTON -- Cliff Lee is coming back.

The lefty threw a lengthy bullpen session Saturday morning at Nationals Park, and pronounced himself fit and ready to return to the Phillies' rotation on Wednesday. He has been on the disabled list since April 19 with a strained left oblique.

"Everything is normal," Lee said.

If he continues to feel OK -- and there is no reason to think he will not -- he will face the New York Mets on Wednesday at Citizens Bank Park. Kyle Kendrick, who had been starting in Lee's place, will return to the bullpen.

Lee is 0-1 with a 1.96 ERA in three starts this season.
