Left-hander Cliff Lee took his healthy arm and ailing abdominal muscle to the fields today and played catch - as important a game of catch as Seattle will have all spring.
For six minutes, Lee threw a baseball, saying afterward he felt 'all right,' and 'better' than the last time he tried to throw a ball.
That's the No. 2 pitcher in the Mariners rotation we're talking about, and no one is sure when he'll pitch again - or even get up on a mound.
"He'll play catch every other day, and we'll do that two or three times and see where we're at," trainer Rick Griffin said.
