Orioles’ Lee Misses Game With Bruised Foot

SARASOTA, Fla. — Baltimore first baseman Derrek Lee has a bruised left foot and did not travel to Port Charlotte for a game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Lee fouled a ball off the foot on the first pitch he saw Saturday in his spring training debut. He had been sidelined with a sore right wrist.

The foot didn’t bother Lee until he left the ballpark. He had an X-ray Saturday night and then the MRI on Sunday, which came back negative.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said it looked like “we dodged a bullet.”

Jake Fox started at first base for Baltimore against Tampa Bay.
