Cliff Lee was on the mound for the first time in a few days. The veteran lefty threw a bullpen session this morning as pitching coach Rich Dubee and head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan looked on. Lee has been battling what the team is describing as a minor case of mid-section soreness. 

"Better safe than sorry, especially this early," Lee told reporters on Friday."It's really it. I didn't really think I was going to have to talk about it."

Lee skipped a bullpen session on Wednesday and eased off his spring training workload for a couple of days before getting back on the mound this morning.

Lee missed four starts in 2010 with an ab strain. Last season, he went 17-8 with a 2.40 ERA, 9.2 K/9, 1.6 BB/9 and 0.7 HR/9 in 232 2/3 innings over 32 starts.
