Lee will wear No. 33

The Phillies have made the Cliff Lee signing official, so he rejoins the team exactly 364 days after he was traded to the Seattle Mariners.

The team verified that the deal is for five years and $120 million with a sixth-year vesting option. Lee will wear No. 33 because his old number with the Phillies (34) now belongs to Roy Halladay, the man who replaced him as the staff ace last season.

Lee will meet with the media at 3 p.m. in Citizens Bank Park.

More details later and in Thursday's Philadelphia Inquirer.
