While he was with Seattle, early last season, Cliff Lee had an oblique injury; and, at the end of the year, when he was with Texas, Lee had trigger point injection in his back to offset an injury. Also, Lee struggled with an abdominal injury in 2007 as well.
There’s something going on, it seems, at times, with Cliff’s core. And, if the Yankees do decide to invest heavily on this pitcher, I hope they do their homework and make sure they’re not getting a ticking time bomb here.
Otherwise, without question, Lee is a master on the mound. And, if healthly, he would be an ace on any pitching staff.
