ATLANTA (AP) - Cliff Lee says he's ready to reclaim his spot in Philadelphia's starting rotation after missing the past nine weeks with a strained left elbow.
As for how much longer he will pitch for the Phillies, Lee is less certain as his name circulates in potential trade talks.
''It's out of my control,'' the 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner said. ''Right now I'm a Phillie and I'm ready to help this team win.''
Philadelphia began Friday in last place in the NL East and 10 games behind Atlanta and Washington.
Lee, who is 4-4 with a 3.18 ERA in 10 starts, will start Monday against San Francisco.
Lee is still owed more than $10.3 million this season, $25 million next year and has a vesting option for 2016.
