Cliff Lee


Already facing long odds in the NL East this season, the Philadelphia Phillies were dealt an unfortunate blow over the weekend as star pitcher Cliff Lee went down with elbow soreness.


The Philadelphia Phillies have a large group of players involved in trade rumors this offseason, as the struggling franchise looks to rebuild for the future.


2014 record: 73-89, 5th place in NL East

Manager: Ryne Sandberg, 3rd season

Estimated 2015 payroll: $140 million


Though Max Scherzer's contract includes a signing bonus and deferred money, the final total counting against the Nats' payroll comes in at seven years and $210 million.
