Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee didn't throw his bullpen session yesterday to some mild abdominal soreness, that according to Phillies beat writer David Hale of the Wilmington New Journal.

Also in Phillies pitching news, Justin De Fratus, who is expected to battle for a spot in the bullpen, will be shut down for about a week due to soreness in his pitching elbow.  That was reported by Todd Zolecki of MLB.com.
