Cliff Lee Phillies Physical Scheduled For Wednesday Morning

All right, so Cliff Lee has signed with the Phillies. He's signed a contract worth at least $120 million over five years, and as much as $135 million over six. That's the news that's shaken up the entire baseball world over the past 16 hours.

But you'll notice that the contract isn't yet official. And that's because Lee still has to undergo the standard physical examination to make sure nothing's wrong with his body. And while there's no reason to believe there's anything wrong with his body, the Phillies are currently scheduled to make sure Wednesday morning.

It is only after the physical is complete that the Phillies can make everything official and hold a press conference, and said conference is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. So for those of you who, for whatever reason, are panicking, be patient. It'll just be another day.

While Lee wore number 34 with the Phillies in 2009, he will be given number 33 at the press conference - the same number he wore last season with the Rangers.
