4/14 D-Lee expects to be in lineup Thursday
Derrek Lee received a cortisone shot in his right thumb on Monday and said he expected to be back in the Cubs’ lineup Thursday.
“I’ll be in there tomorrow,” Lee said.
Lee actually injured his thumb on April 5, Opening Day, in Atlanta, when he dove for a ball. He prefers not to discuss any aches or pains.
“I don’t like revealing my weaknesses,” Lee said, laughing.
