Cliff Lee throws without pain; return to action still uncertain


The good news is that Cliff Lee completed a 55-pitch throwing session yesterday without any of the pain in his abdomen that he had last week. The bad news is that neither Lee or the Mariners yet know when he can return and actually pitch in a game.

In a chat yesterday the Seattle Times’ Geoff Baker said that Lee wouldn’t be back “until May.”  Given the good report from the throwing session, one would figure that to be the outside of things.
