Caution continues to be the approach with injured Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee, who is eligible to come off the disabled list Friday but won't, pitching coach Rich Dubee said Monday.

Lee has been on disabled list with a strained left oblique since April 21, three days after he'd pitched 10 shutout innings in an eventual 1-0 loss to the Giants in San Francisco.

He's thrown some long toss since, including Sunday, but that's it. And though Lee has said he feels better, he doesn't feel good enough.
