Lee arrives at M's camp with bandaged foot
Acquired from the Phillies in the biggest trade of the offseason, Lee has a bandage around his left foot following Feb. 5 surgery to remove a bone spur. He arrived yesterday for a physical and said he's getting around fine.
"It won't affect me," said Lee, 31.
The lefthander is expected to combine with Felix Hernandez to give Seattle among the best rotation fronts in the major leagues.
Seattle and the doctors preferred that Lee have the operation earlier rather than later.
"That's common sense," Zduriencik said. "Three weeks now is a whole lot different than 3 weeks in the middle of July."
