July 27 12:35 PM PT1:35 PM MT2:35 PM CT3:35 PM ET15:35 ET19:35 GMT3:35 12:35 PM MST2:35 PM EST3:05 PM VEN23:35 UAE2:35 PM CT-Lee was sub-par in a no-decision in Saturday's 10-6 loss to Arizona, surrendering three runs and nine hits over five innings.
Analysis: Lee has surrendered nine runs in a combined 10 2-3 innings in two outings since returning from a strained left elbow.
July 22 12:10 PM PT1:10 PM MT2:10 PM CT3:10 PM ET15:10 ET19:10 GMT3:10 12:10 PM MST2:10 PM EST2:40 PM VEN23:10 UAE2:10 PM CT-Making his first start in two months, Lee allowed six runs and 12 hits over 5 2-3 innings in Monday's 7-4 loss to San Francisco.
Analysis: It wasn't a very impressive return for Lee, who failed to impress all the scouts in attendance. Despite the poor showing, there's still a chance Lee could be moved before the deadline.
May 20 3:37 PM PT4:37 PM MT5:37 PM CT6:37 PM ET18:37 ET22:37 GMT6:37 3:37 PM MST5:37 PM EST6:07 PM VEN2:37 UAE (+1)5:37 PM CT-The Phillies have activated pitcher Cliff Lee, infielder Reid Brignac and catcher Wil Nieves from the disabled list.
Analysis: Lee was to start Monday night against San Francisco after missing nine weeks because of an elbow strain. The former AL Cy Young Award winner is 4-4 with a 3.18 ERA this season.
May 8 1:34 PM PT2:34 PM MT3:34 PM CT4:34 PM ET16:34 ET20:34 GMT4:34 1:34 PM MST3:34 PM EST4:04 PM VEN0:34 UAE (+1)3:34 PM CT-Lee took his third loss of the season Wednesday after being shelled at Toronto.
Analysis: Lee was charged with six runs and seven hits - including two homers - over 6 1-3 innings. Owners likely shouldn't be too concerned, however, as his 2.72 FIP suggests he's been better than most of his numbers indicate.
Apr. 22 8:26 AM PT9:26 AM MT10:26 AM CT11:26 AM ET11:26 ET15:26 GMT23:26 8:26 AM MST10:26 AM EST10:56 AM VEN19:26 UAE10:26 AM CT-Lee scattered four hits over eight innings, struck out 10 and retired 21 of his last 22 batters to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.
Analysis: Lee (3-2, 3.09 ERA) had at least one strikeout in every inning he pitched and did not walk a batter. Lee has 38 strikeouts and two walks through his first five starts, after leading the majors in strikeout to-walk ratio and fewest walks per nine innings during each of the previous two seasons. The 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner has pitched at least seven innings and allowed no more than three earned runs in any of his eight regular-season starts against the Dodgers.
Apr. 6 11:15 AM PT12:15 PM MT1:15 PM CT2:15 PM ET14:15 ET18:15 GMT2:15 11:15 AM MST1:15 PM EST1:45 PM VEN22:15 UAE1:15 PM CT-Lee pitched seven scoreless innings to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.
Analysis: Lee (2-0) allowed 10 hits and had just one 1-2-3 inning. But it never felt as if he was in trouble. He worked on the edges of both sides of the plate and kept the Cubs hitters off balance. Four of his six strikeouts were called third strikes.
Apr. 1 2:17 PM PT3:17 PM MT4:17 PM CT5:17 PM ET17:17 ET21:17 GMT5:17 2:17 PM MST4:17 PM EST4:47 PM VEN1:17 UAE (+1)4:17 PM CT-Lee was credited with the win in Philadelphia's 14-10 victory at Texas on Opening Day despite allowing 11 hits and eight runs over five innings.
Analysis: Monday marked the first time Lee ever recorded a win despite allowing at least 10 hits and failing to pitch more than five innings.
Mar. 15 8:38 PM PT9:38 PM MT10:38 PM CT11:38 PM ET23:38 ET3:38 GMT11:38 8:38 PM MST10:38 PM EST11:08 PM VEN7:38 UAE (+1)9:38 PM CT-Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg has yet to reveal his opening-day starter, but Lee is the likely choice.
Analysis: He has allowed four earned runs and 11 hits in 13 2-3 innings this spring.

Minor Details Ep. 94.2 with Jim Callis of MLB.com: Are Red Sox prospects overvalued?

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.

Minor Details Ep. 94.1: Are prospects overvalued? Andrew Miller on being traded for Miguel Cabrera

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.

Ian Browne reflects on 10th anniversary of Red Sox-Yankees brawl

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
