3/12 D-Lee scratched
First baseman Derrek Lee was scratched from Friday’s lineup because of a bruise on the top of his left foot. His status was day to day.
Lee fouled a ball off his foot in the fourth inning Wednesday in the Cubs’ game against the San Francisco Giants. He could be back in the lineup as early as Saturday, Cubs manager Lou Piniella said.
Bobby Scales and Brad Snyder, who collided in shallow right field Thursday chasing a fly ball, both survived. Scales started at second on Friday. Snyder has a bruised thigh but did make the trip to Las Vegas for the Cubs’ split squad games against the White Sox.
