Big news in Clearwater today– Cliff Lee has an ab strain. He’s fine, it seems, but spoke with reporters and was completely indifferent to your injury concerns:
"Decided to skip my bullpen, which is a minor deal, and basically just play it safe at this point. I felt a lot better yesterday and today, and heading in the right direction.
Different than [the thing last year]. Similar to ab strains that I’ve had in the past, basically the early stages of that, and in the past I’ve tried to just power through it and I’m trying to be smarter with it now. Small issue now, so decided to skip the bullpen."
