The Philadelphia Phillies have transferred left handed pitcher Cliff Lee from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Lee will be first eligible to rejoin the Phillies rotation on July 18 and is expected to pitch on July 19 for the team.

The move is simply a procedural move to make room for Grady Sizemore on the 40-man roster. Sizemore hit .289/.360/.378 with one homer over 10 games for Lehigh Valley. During his time with the Boston Red Sox, Sizemore hit just .216/.288/.324 in 52 games.

In Lee’s last start with High-A Clearwater he allowed three runs in four innings of work.
