5/11 Lee update
There are no plans to put Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee on the disabled list. Lee was examined by team orthopedic specialist Dr. Stephen Gryzlo, and has shown improvement since he was sidelined May 6 with the stiff neck. An MRI confirmed the bulging disk, and the medical team decided Lee did not need an injection. The Cubs also have ruled out any danger of long-term problems. Barring any setback, Lee could be back in the Cubs lineup Tuesday or Wednesday.
