Lee to pitch every fifth day to the end

Lee to pitch every fifth day to the end

|
BOSTON -- The Rangers are going to try to squeeze an extra start or two from Cliff Lee by pitching him every fifth day down the stretch. That would mean other starters getting pushed back or skipped when the Rangers have a day off.

Sticking to this schedule, Lee will get 15 starts through the end of the season. His next one is Thursday against the Angels at the Ballpark in Arlington.

"We want to get as many starts out of him as we can," manager Ron Washington said. "He has always had a consistent routine and we want to keep him on a consistent rotation."
