PHILADELPHIA, May 9 (UPI) --
The Philadelphia Phillies activated pitcher Cliff Lee
from the 15-day disabled list and said he would start Wednesday night against the New York Mets.
The 33-year-old left-hander went on the DL April 21 with a left oblique strain, just days after he went 10 innings against San Francisco.
He is 0-1 with a 1.96 earned run average this season.
The Phillies optioned reliever Michael Schwimer to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to clear a spot on the roster for Lee.
