Cliff Lee Having MRI On Elbow

Cliff LeePhillies’ ace Cliff Lee has been experiencing discomfort in his left elbow, and will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the problem.

Lee has reportedly been pitching through the problem for three weeks now, and playing through the injury may have caused him to sustain more extensive damage.

A significant injury to Lee would be a crushing blow to the Phillies. They’d not only be without one of their top pitchers, but it would leave them without one of their best assets at the trade deadline (not that Ruben Amaro would be able to successfully identify quality prospects in another team’s farm system).

  • I can see it already, the built in excuse for losing, & he’ll be misdiagnosed, & miss the rest of the 1st half of the season!

  • even if it is just a strain, he will probably miss a month. Chris Sale just went through this same thing and he is a month and counting on the DL.

  • I expected the old fellas to start to break down but Lee wasn’t one of them. I thought Lee and Rollins were the only solid reliable players.

  • Ton of mileage will eventually catch up. What scares me is that he said that he hasn’t ever felt like this before.

    • Kind of the same thing that Doc said when he first started having issues…
      These guys have thrown a lot of Innings..
