Cliff Lee will be introduced as a member of the Phillies (again) at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, scheduled to start at 3 p.m. Lee officially signed his five-year, $120 million contract with the Phillies earlier in the day on Wednesday after passing his physical.
Lee will be wearing a different number on his introductory jersey than his first time around in Philly, opting to go with No. 33. He wore 34 with the Phillies previously, but that number is now used by Roy Halladay. Lee used No. 33 with the Rangers last season.
With Lee joining the Phillies’ rotation, they now have one of the best starting rotations of all time. The combined ERA of their rotation was 3.17 in 2010, with Lee and Roy Oswalt leading the A.L. and N.L. in WHIP.
