Derrek Lee left Saturday’s game in the fourth inning with a mild strain in his right side. Manager Bobby Cox said afterward that he would likely rest Lee Sunday but he should be OK to return on Monday against the Mets.
“I don’t think it’s too bad,” Cox said. ” We had a six-run lead at the time. We all know six runs sometimes dissipates quickly but it was a good time for him to go ahead and get it treated and take the night off and maybe tomorrow.”
Cox said trainers don’t believe it’s an oblique strain, which is considered more serious.
