Phillies Spring Training 2012: Cliff Lee On Phillies' Depth

The Philadelphia Phillies have been without Ryan Howard and Chase Utley all spring training and don't know when either will return.

Starting pitcher Cliff Lee understands that losing both stars is a harsh blow, but points towards the Phillies' depth as evidence that the team can survive injuries to key players.

"We've got a lot of guys. We're not leaning on one or two guys offensively or one or two guys on the mound. We've got depth and we've got guys who are more than capable of stepping in and filling in those holes that are left when --- you can't replace Utley or Howard, but we've dealt with injuries before with keys guys and figured out a way to get it done," said Lee.
