|Derrek Lee Still Out With Bruised Foot
|MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs' Derrek Lee will miss a few more spring training games with a left foot injury that the first baseman says isn't serious.
Manager Lou Piniella on Saturday called the injury "just a bone bruise."
Lee was injured Wednesday when he fouled a ball off the top of his foot.
Piniella expects Lee will be ready to play again "after the Tucson trip." The Cubs play Monday against Colorado in Tucson, and most veterans dislike making the two-hour bus trip.
