PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies had hoped Cliff Lee could begin his throwing program as early as last week, but the wait continues.

"It's still there a little bit," Lee said Monday about the discomfort in his left elbow. "It's getting better."

Lee has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 19 with a strained elbow. He said he plans to join the team on its upcoming six-game road trip to Washington and Cincinnati, which begins Tuesday night against the Nationals at Nationals Park. He is hopeful he can begin his throwing program on the road.

"There's a chance that could happen on this road trip," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said.
