ALLENTOWN - Like the Phillies, Freddy Galvis has had a rough year. The 24-year-old infielder found misfortune even before the season started, and it has not gotten much better since. In late March, Glavis contracted MRSA, a staph infection that can easily lead to other infections, and had to be hospitalized. The Phillies made the decision that he would start the season on the disabled list, putting him behind right from the get-go. "It was really tough because I didn't get to do a spring training," Galvis said.

I VOLUNTEER at a correctional institution for women. During one financial-literacy class, I was struck by something that was disturbing two inmates who were scheduled to be released within the next two years. They were worried about defaulted student loans. Once out of prison, they feared that if they found a job, debt collectors would come after their paychecks. They were concerned that late fees, additional interest and other collection costs would make it impossible for them to get out of default.

ATLANTA - The prize of the pitching market this July, David Price, plays for a team enjoying its best run of the season. There are no guarantees that Tampa Bay will deal Price, and that steers all focus toward Cliff Lee. He will pitch Monday for the first time in two months. More than a dozen scouts are expected at Citizens Bank Park to evaluate how Lee has handled a strained left elbow. Lee will start two games before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. His performances will dictate whether that is enough to entice a contender to offer a suitable package.

With a hoist and a sudden mechanical groan, Dan Webb, 44, stands up in the rehabilitation gym at MossRehab in Elkins Park, grinning from ear to ear. You might say standing is not such a big deal, unless, like Webb, who fell from a tree stand while bowhunting in 2010 and suffered incomplete paralysis of the lower half of his body, you've spent a year of your life in a wheelchair. In his case, it's a very big deal indeed. And Webb, of Warminster - who has been working with exoskeleton technology for two years at MossRehab - can do more than stand.

CLIFF LEE struggled in what's expected to be his final rehab start before rejoining the Phillies, allowing eight runs, three earned, in 4 2/3 innings last night for Class A Clearwater. Lee, slated to start for the Phillies (42-53) in Monday's series opener against the San Francisco Giants, gave up eight hits, four for extra bases, against the St. Louis affiliated Palm Beach Cardinals. The Cy Young Award-winning lefthander is working his way back from the left elbow strain that landed him on the disabled list on May 20. The third outing of Lee's rehab assignment was also his longest.

The day Seabrook House opened in 1974, a young woman walked through the door with two little boys. She wanted to know whether the brand-new alcoholism and addiction treatment center in rural Cumberland County, N.J., could help her husband. Seabrook cofounder Margaret "Peg" Diehl gave the visitor the answer she'd learned by heart in the 1960s, when she was struggling to raise her sons while her husband's drinking threatened to destroy their lives - and his. The woman's husband could be offered treatment, "but her family needed help, too," Peg recalls.

MILWAUKEE - Cliff Lee threw 59 pitches without incident Wednesday night in Tampa, Fla., and that was one of the more positive developments in seven weeks for the prized Phillies starter with the strained left elbow. He allowed three runs in four innings for single-A Clearwater. Lee will pitch there again Monday in what could be the final precursor to his return. His first minor-league rehab outing last Sunday was shortened by rain. This one had a better conclusion. He cruised through the first three innings on 32 pitches with six groundouts and two strikeouts.

ORLANDO - Michael Carter-Williams says his rehabilitation is going better than expected. "I'm back to shooting," said the 76ers point guard, who had surgery May 6 to repair the labrum of his right shoulder. "I have full extension and everything. So I'm ahead of schedule. " That's good for Sixers fans, who were fearful that trade rumors involving Carter-Williams were accurate. General manager Sam Hinkie said Tuesday that the Sixers were committed to the reigning rookie of the year.

MILWAUKEE - Cliff Lee will resume his minor league rehab assignment with Class A Clearwater tomorrow in Tampa. Lee's first rehab start Sunday afternoon was limited to 24 pitches in two innings after a rainstorm in southern Florida suspended the game. The Phillies had hoped to get Lee up to 70 pitches in the game. "Stuff was good," Amaro said. "Delivery was good. He was 89 to 91, so not all that far off from where he usually is. " Barring a setback, Lee is likely to make two starts in the next week before rejoining the Phillies when the team returns from the All-Star break.
