6/27 Derrek Lee update

Derrek Lee said his back problem was a “non-issue” and apparently was caused by the long flight between Chicago and Seattle.

“It’s a little tight from that airplane trip [to Seattle], a four-hour trip,” Lou Piniella said. “We’re utilizing the [designated hitter] spot to give him a little bit of a breather. After today, you’ve got to play on the field. We’ll ‘DH’ him today and see how he feels tomorrow.”

Said Lee: “I’m fine. I have a little stiffness the last couple days. I’ll take the opportunity to DH and get off the field.”
