Lee shows no signs of abdominal strain
CLEARWATER, Fla. -- After skipping his previous scheduled bullpen session due to abdominal soreness, Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee is back on schedule.

Lee threw about 40 pitches in a side session early Sunday morning, showing no signs of the mild ab strain that led him to scratch his previous bullpen session, and even joking with reporters as he left the bullpen mound. Lee will pitch again Tuesday during batting practice.

"Cliff looked fine," pitching coach Rich Dubee said.

Lee repeatedly referred to the soreness as a "minor deal" on Friday, saying that he did more ab workouts this offseason than ever before. More than anything, Lee said, he was just playing it safe by skipping his last side session.
