CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Cliff Lee gave up a run in three innings, outpitching fellow Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey, but Adam Lind and Dan Johnson each homered for the Toronto Blue Jays in 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. Lee, the 2008 AL Cy Young winner with Cleveland, allowed three hits and struck out two. He matched up against the 2012 NL winner -- with the New York Mets -- for the second time in six days. "Cliff was solid, a normal outing for him," Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg said. "He had his fastball command and he made some good pitches. I thought he looked sharp." Dickey yielded three runs and four hits in four innings of his second spring start. He struck out two and walked three. "I felt strong, which is all I really care about right now," Dickey said. "Being able to get up and down (for four innings) early in spring, feeling great, thats important for me. Lind connected off right-hander B.J. Rosenberg with two outs in the fourth inning. Marlon Byrd hit an opposite-field homer in the third off Dickey. STARTING TIME Phillies: Lee threw a perfect first inning en route to three sharp innings in his second spring outing. The left-hander hasnt walked a batter in five spring innings. "Im pretty happy with it," Lee said. "I know what my job is (this spring) and I know what I need to do to prepare. . Its just a matter of doing it." Blue Jays: Dickey hit the second batter he faced and walked three but remained encouraged following his second start of the spring. "I had a really good (knuckle) today," Dickey said. "The one that hit (Freddy) Galvis, it broke three feet and just broke right into his shoe. Thats part of the deal; you get one, it catches and goes that way. Thats tough. Other than that I felt pretty good." BIG BYRD Byrd finished the game 2 for 3 and is hitting .385 in five games this spring. The Phillies signed Byrd to a two-year, $16 million free-agent contract to play right field and bat behind cleanup hitter Ryan Howard. "Hes swinging a good bat and having consistent at-bats," Sandberg said. "Hes a good bat for us and hes showing it early." TRAINERS ROOM Phillies: Third baseman Cody Asche took batting practice with his teammates but was out of the lineup for the second straight day. Asche was hit in the right hand with a pitch from Pittsburghs Yao-Hsun Yang on Sunday. He could return to the lineup on Wednesday against the Braves, according to Sandberg. "Hes a quick healer," Sandberg said. Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins was a late scratch from the starting lineup. Rollins took part in pregame work with the team but has had flu-like symptoms. Rollins illness kept him out of camp on Monday.

Ottawas general manager said hes had discussions about trading his captain but will not make a move unless he can get an acceptable return. "I dont think when you trade a player of Jasons calibre that you ever win," Murray said on Thursday. "I think we try to get the best return we can and then if its not satisfactory we cant do it and he has a year left on his contract." Spezza had 23 goals and 66 points in 75 games last season. He has 251 goals and 687 points in 686 career NHL games. Spezza has one year remaining on his contract with a cap hit of US$7 million. He has a limited no-trade clause, which allowed him to submit a list of ten teams where he would not want to play. Its believed he would prefer to move out of Canada and the glare of the spotlight that comes from playing north of the border. Ideally, its believed Murray would like to get a player who can come in and play on the teams top two lines, a highly-ranked prospect and perhaps a first-round pick at the upcoming NHL Entry Draft, seeing as the Senators dont have one this year. Murray said he has heard from teams, and speculation has Anaheim and St. Louis as the front-runners. "All we do in our business is investigate when theres a request by a player," said Murray. "You investigate possibilities and you talk about it and negotiate and when you negotiate it sometimes takes a week. Not very often its one phone call, sometimes many and in this case it appears that there will be many." The 31-year-old Spezza has spent 11 seasons with the Senators, the last as captain, but at the conclusion of this season it was clear he was unhappy and rumours of a trade request soon surfaced. From the moment Spezza arrived in Ottawa as a 19-year-old, he has been a lightning rod for criticism by both fans and media and it appears hes grown tired of it all. "The only explanation I have is that he would like to try something different," said Murray. "He thinks that the fingers are pointed at him quite often in Ottawa. Winning or losing he gets credit or he gets bblamed and I think he feels its time to do something else.dddddddddddd" When asked whether or not he felt that was a legitimate cause for a trade request Murray said, "thats not for me to judge." Its not the first time a star player has requested a move under Murrays watch. The Senators traded Dany Heatley to San Jose in 2009 after Heatley requested a move. "Im always disappointed that we havent been able to satisfy players, whether it be Jason or any other player that has ever asked for a trade," said Murray. "But its probably a little more common place now." With the departure of longtime captain Daniel Alfredsson last season, Spezza was the reins of the club. Expectations were that the added responsibility might translate to better play away from the puck. Over the course of the season it appeared head coach Paul MacLean grew frustrated with his captains play and that the two didnt always see eye-to-eye. "Jason told me this at the end, he understood what Paul was trying to do and thats not the reason (he wants a trade)," said Murray. "Thats basically what he told me." Despite the NHL entry draft being just over a week away Murray says he feels no sense of urgency to complete the trade. At this point all it entails is a little more work on his part. "Its just another number of phone calls you have to make on a daily basis almost to see if you can do something to satisfy the player and the team," said Murray. "Let me assure you were looking to satisfy our hockey team. Were looking to win here. Were trying to get return that will give us that chance. It just makes it a little bit busier thats all." Notes: The Senators have signed C Mike Hoffman to a one-year, two-way deal. C Stephane DaCosta turned down an offer by the Senators and appears poised to play in the KHL this coming season. Assistant general manager Pierre Dorion admitted the team has held discussions with G Robin Lehner regarding a contract extension for the restricted free agent. The Senators have made an offer to Milan Michalek and are confident a deal can be made with the veteran winger.
