REPORT: Cliff Lee Has MRI On Left Elbow

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The nightmare scenario may be upon us.

Like an overnight thunderstorm that strikes without warning came news that has the potential to both destroy the 2014 season and future seasons as well.

Of course, further details are not available, but as noted by Crashburn Alley a few days ago, Cliff Lee's velocity has been down recently.

Hopefully, the news is not as dire as it could be. Hopefully Lee is just experiencing some soreness and some rest will help him heal.

But if Lee is seriously hurt, and if this yet another Tommy John surgery in the making, the Phillies will not only lose the pitcher that gives them the best chance to win this year, but will also cost them their best potential trade chip at the July 31 deadline.

We'll have more information on this breaking story as it develops. In the meantime, let's all panic.
