Derrek Lee late scratch with recurring sore hand
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)
Manager Clint Hurdle said Wednesday that Lee's hand was very sore after he played the two previous nights against San Francisco following a four-game absence with the bruised hand. Lee was hit with a pitch from Chicago's Carlos Marmol last Wednesday.
Lee is batting .278 with two home runs and three RBIs in four games since joining the Pirates in a trade from Baltimore.
Garrett Jones replaced Lee in the lineup and batted third.
