DETROIT (AP) — Philadelphia left-hander Cliff Lee has been scratched from Saturday night’s start at Detroit because of a stiff neck.

Lee will be replaced by left-hander Raul Valdes, who has gone 1-0 with a 7.59 ERA in 11 relief appearances this year.

Lee is 10-4 with a 3.05 ERA.

Detroit’s Max Scherzer puts his 14-1 record on the line Saturday.

The Phillies are already without right-hander Roy Halladay, who is on the disabled list along with first baseman Ryan Howard and outfielders Domonic Brown and Ben Revere.
