Cliff Lee    P   Philadelphia Phillies
Lee left Thursday's game in the third inning with an apparent left elbow injury.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Lee tapped his elbow twice after stepping off the mound, and after a brief meeting with trainers, he exited the game. This development is concerning, as a left elbow strain caused Lee to miss significant time earlier in the season. More information should be made available from manager Ryne Sandberg following the game. Lee made it through 2.2 scoreless innings before being forced to exit.
Chris Dickerson    OF   Cleveland Indians
Dickerson was removed from Thursday's game against the Mariners after the second inning, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
