Derrek Lee - Back To Save the Cubs' Season

Postby Fade2White12 » Wed Jun 21, 2006 12:55 am

Lee has been taking batting practice in a cage for the last several days, and told team trainer Mark O'Neal he feels good on 95 percent of his swings. Lee told reporters he felt good after taking batting practice with his teammates Tuesday and will make a decision on whether he's ready after he sees how his right wrist responds after his next session Wednesday.

Lee didn't want to put a timetable on his return, but acknowledged he's ready.

"He's gung-ho and ready to go," O'Neal said. "We're really trying to restrain him enough to make sure that he can be where he needs to be. He needs to be able to repeat the swings and tolerate four or five at-bats."

Lee said it's ultimately his call.

"I've been out two months," he said. "That's a lot of games to miss, so I'm excited to get back on the field."



Ohhhhhh Yeahhhhh!

Derrek Lee (wrist) is hoping to return to the Cubs' lineup this weekend.
Lee took batting practice for the first time since the injury on Tuesday and felt good following the session. "It felt really good,'' Lee said. "They want to see how it responds [Wednesday]. Then we will do it again in BP [Wednesday], see how it responds and make a decision. I've been out two months. I'm going to try to get back on the field."
