Rosenthal: Indians agree on a deal to send Cliff Lee to Phillies

Cleveland would also send OF Ben Francisco to Philly in return for Single-A RHP Jason Knapp, AAA RHP Carlos Carrasco, SS Jason Donald and C Lou Marson. The deal is pending medical review. Not a bad deal for Philly, as they upgrade their weak rotation significantly without breaking up their MLB roster or giving up the haul for Halladay. As it pertains to the Rockies, Francisco's presence negates any reason for them to acquire Ryan Spilborghs. Also, unless the NL Central winner catches Philly (highly unlikely now), the Phillies would be the Rockies' first series playoff opponent should we win the wild card.
