Mike Schmidt became a half-million dollars richer yesterday, and he didn't have to win the lottery to do it. Rather, the windfall resulted from a clause in his contract that said he would receive that sum if he were still on the Phillies' roster on May 15. Seeing his 1989 salary doubled overnight didn't excite Schmidt, who is more concerned these days with the sore left elbow that may have contributed to his being homerless since May 2....

As if the Phoenix Suns didn't have enough trouble already, the prognosis on Charles Barkley's tender right elbow is not cause for optimism. Barkley, the heart, soul and spirit of the Suns, played last night in Game 3 with a large protective wrap on the elbow. At times during the game, he sat on the bench with ice on the elbow. If this series lasts much longer, his effectiveness could be in doubt. Suns team physician Richard Emerson said the elbow was not damaged when Barkley collided in Game 2 with Chicago's Scott Williams, but it was inflamed.

Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham grabbed his throwing elbow as he was helped off the Georgia Dome carpet and we could hear the gasps from Channel 29 viewers all the way down here. "I had a little palpitation," coach Rich Kotite said after the Birds' 20-12 loss to the Falcons. "I went over (to the bench) and I knew immediately it wasn't serious, so I felt a lot better. " Understandably so. Kotite, after all, has had Cunningham for just 20 of his 48 regular-season games as the Birds' head coach.

The huddle included Phillies manager Nick Leyva, general manager Lee Thomas, trainer Jeff Cooper and club physician Dr. Phillip Marone. After a while, the door to Leyva's office opened and righthander Steve Ontiveros was invited to join the group. Then the door closed again. By the time Ontiveros emerged, the best-laid plans once again had been scrambled. Ontiveros, it was announced, would not be activated from the disabled list. He would not pitch Thursday at Dodger Stadium.

Righthander Mark Portugal was told last night that he will have surgery on his right elbow Monday and will miss at least three months. In addition, lefthander Matt Beech was placed on the disabled list. Reliever Ken Ryan was activated, and struggling pitcher Bobby Munoz said he and catcher Mike Lieberthal are friends but "have a communication problem. " And that wasn't all. After their 3-1 win over Colorado, the Phils sent pitcher Scott Ruffcorn (0-0, 4.38 ERA) and infielder Kevin Sefcik (.150)

The diagnosis - bone chips in his right elbow - is in for Glenn Robinson, and the 76ers forward must decide whether to have surgery and possibly miss the remainder of the season, or rest it in the hopes of playing again. Robinson was examined Monday by orthopedist James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. He was given two options: surgery that would sideline him for three to five weeks, or rehabilitation that may get him back sooner. "I'm stuck in between right now," Robinson said last night before the Sixers' game against the Chicago Bulls.

National League MVP Larry Walker of the Colorado Rockies' will undergo arthroscopic surgery on a troublesome right elbow Tuesday in Denver and is expected to miss most of spring training. The team expects the rightfielder to be 100 percent healthy by opening day. Walker felt pain in his elbow after swinging and missing a pitch in the Rockies' 160th game of the season on Sept. 26. Later in that at-bat, Walker belted his 49th homer of the season. He never got a chance for No. 50 as the pain in the elbow prevented him from playing the final two games.

Larry Walker barely had time to dry himself off from a stint in the hot tub when he received the all-too-familiar news. He was returning to the disabled list and could possibly miss the remainder of the season. The Colorado Rockies placed the two-time defending National League batting champion on the 15-day DL yesterday, hoping the time off will help Walker's chronically ailing right elbow. "I came to the ballpark with my game face on, ready to play and now I'm on the DL," Walker said.

Rick Mahorn has been wearing a Sixers uniform less than a week, but he already has begun making waves. The veteran power forward, long known as one of the league's most rugged players, was ejected from last night's 115-91 victory over Miami after elbowing the Heat's feisty 6-9 rookie, Terry Davis, above the shoulder with 9:42 to play in the second quarter. The NBA rules instruct officials to eject anyone throwing an elbow that makes contact above shoulder level. When the dust clears from this one, Mahorn should be shelling out some money for his actions.

An examination of Frank Viola's pitching elbow yesterday revealed signs of small bone spurs, but the New York Mets said he would continue his workouts as scheduled. Anti-inflammatory medication was prescribed for the lefthander, who underwent a magnetic resonance imaging examination. The MRI detected no loose bodies, and the team said he would work out today. Viola reported soreness after throwing Friday in Port St. Lucie, Fla. "The only thing that concerned me is that I've never had problems at all, especially this early," he said.

When Cliff Lee consulted with two doctors, there was never a mention of surgery for his troublesome left elbow. The parties agreed that Lee suffered a reoccurrence of the strained flexor pronator muscle, an injury that sidelined him for two months earlier this season. The Phillies will adopt another conservative approach with Lee, who may not throw again until October or November. But another elongated period of rest will not quell doubt about Lee's availability for 2015. He is, for now, expected to be ready for spring training.

RYNE SANDBERG, a man whose fate as a first-time big-league manager could be determined by how the Phillies bounce back next year after a dreadful 2014, was certainly happy to hear Cliff Lee would not need surgery on his ailing left elbow. "That's good news," Sandberg said. "Looks promising. " An MRI from earlier this week revealed that Lee has a Grade 2 left flexor pronator strain. Lee had a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injection on Wednesday and will once again combat the injury with rest.

WASHINGTON - The fact that the Phillies didn't make a trade by the non-waiver trade deadline wasn't the worst news Thursday. Lefthander Cliff Lee, making his third start after being sidelined more than two months with a strained left elbow, was forced to leave the game after throwing an 85-m.p.h. cutter to Denard Span with two outs in the third inning against the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park. According to the Phillies, Lee reinjured his elbow. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list and lefthander Cesar Jimenez was promoted from Lehigh Valley.

THE PHILLIES have lost 14 of 21 games since Cliff Lee last threw a baseball, thereby removing any doubt about how they should proceed to handle the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. If they need a reminder of the potential cost of waiting, there sits Lee. The veteran lefthander has not thrown a baseball in 23 days. He is close to picking one up, his manager said yesterday. But that will mark only the halfway point in the process of getting him back on the mound. And so, the Phillies wait.

CLIFF LEE says his strained left elbow is improving, but it appears the Phillies lefthander will need more time to heal before he returns to the mound. After a scheduled re-evaluation by the Phillies' medical staff yesterday, Lee was not cleared to start throwing. When put through tests, the former Cy Young Award winner said he could still feel the small spot on the edge of his bone where his flexor tendon attaches. Lee, on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to May 19, is set for another evaluation on Thursday, according to the team.

MIAMI - Cliff Lee fired 32,869 regular-season pitches in the majors before an elbow or shoulder injury sidelined him. "This is new to me," Lee said Tuesday. He felt the pain in his left elbow when he turned a doorknob and when he lifted his body from a taxi. The Phillies hope two weeks will cure Lee's elbow strain. Lee is not sure. "I've never had anything like this," Lee said. "They seem to think that not throwing for a week, it should be quite a bit better. I don't know if it'll be gone, but you don't really know until you get there.

MIAMI - For a month, Cliff Lee pitched with discomfort in his left elbow. It was diagnosed as a flexor tendon injury, although not serious enough to warrant further examination. Then Lee threw 116 pitches Sunday and felt increased pain later in the game. That is when Phillies doctors decided it was best to investigate. Michael Ciccotti, the team's head physician and leader of Major League Baseball's elbow study group, ordered an MRI exam. It revealed a mild flexor tendon strain. Lee was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday night after a 6-5 Phillies win over Miami.

Until four years ago, medical professionals across Major League Baseball were not speaking the same language. The league finally installed an injury surveillance system, and in 2011 Michael Ciccotti was appointed to lead an elbow study group under baseball's medical advisory committee. Ciccotti, the Phillies' head team physician and director of sports medicine at the Rothman Institute, initiated research on the ulnar collateral ligament, now the most-discussed tissue in baseball.

The Marlins, manager Mike Redmond said, protected Jose Fernandez. They restricted his innings while in the minors. They did not permit him to pitch in the ninth inning of any major-league game. They shut him down in September last season. The 21-year-old Cuban with a dynamic right arm threw 100 or more pitches in just 11 of his first 36 starts, yet he fell to Tommy John surgery last week. "I wish we could find a reason for it, because it's sad," Redmond told reporters. "I wish we could figure out a way to keep these guys on the field.

Atlanta Braves pitcher Brandon Beachy will have ligament-replacement surgery in his right elbow for the second time Friday and is expected to miss the entire season. The Braves said Thursday that Los Angeles Dodgers team physician Neal ElAttrache will operate in Los Angeles. Beachy's ulnar collateral ligament was reconstructed by James Andrews on June 21, 2012. Braves pitcher Kris Medlen had a right elbow ligament replaced by Andrews for the second time Tuesday. Chapman has surgery Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman underwent surgery to repair a broken bone above his left eye, but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive Wednesday in a spring training game.
