The incident appeared to be related to a confrontation between the two in the first inning, when Lee ran to cover home plate on a Chris Young RBI single and ran into Snyder, causing him to fall down.Lee apparently was injured on the play and it became worse three days later when he threw his usual between-start bullpen session. He has since been examined in Seattle by team medical director Dr. Ed Khalfayan, who prescribed platelet-rich plasma therapy, a process that uses the patient's own blood to speed recovery from sports-related injuries. Lee is scheduled to play catch on Wednesday at the Peoria Sports Complex, at which time his game plan on the field could be affected. It remains uncertain whether he will begin the regular season on the Mariners' 25-man roster or be placed on the 15-day disabled list.
"I can't say much about the hearing," manager Don Wakamatsu said. "A lot depends on his health and where he's at. He actually is doing pretty good right now. He did some stuff in the pool today and did some throwing [while sitting] on a chair, which is kind of isolated. He stretched it out a little and didn't feel anything at all. That's a positive."
