Lee missed voluntary workout
Lee, the Astros' cleanup hitter who leads the team with 45 RBIs and is tied for the lead with 12 home runs, was the only Houston player to not participate in what was officially a voluntary workout.
Lee says the pilot who was to fly him back to the United States from Panama had his license expire earlier this week.
Jason Bourgeois started in Lee's place.
