UPDATE: Following Thursday night’s game, the Phillies announced that Cliff Lee will be heading back to the disabled list with a left flexor pronator strain. When speaking to reporters after the game, Lee admitted that his season is in jeopardy.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee, who recently returned after missing two months with a left elbow strain, left in the third inning of Thursday night’s game at Washington.
After throwing ball one to Denard Span with two outs in the third, a frustrated Lee walked off the mound, looked into the Phillies dugout, and tapped his left arm with his glove hand.
Manager Ryne Sandberg and the team trainer came out, and Lee left the game which was tied 0-0.
In his third start since coming off the disabled list, Lee (4-5) retired the first seven batters before Danny Espinosa’s one-out double in the third.
Lee was replaced by Antonio Bastardo.
