No Surgery Confirmed for Lee, but Season Over

Phillies.com—August 6, 2014

PHILADELPHIA -- It is not a surprise, but Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee's season is finished. Lee's locker inside the Phillies' clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park had been completely cleared out before Wednesday's game against the Astros. He is on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 2 flexor pronator strain, and he is going to rest at home in Arkansas for about two weeks before rejoining the team early next month for a reevaluation.

On Wednesday, Lee visited orthopedist David W. Altchek, MD at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Altchek confirmed the Phillies' diagnosis of Lee's injury, which said no surgery is required.
