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.

Maikel Franco had never felt something like this, he said. The rookie said he felt "a little bit of pain" in his right elbow. And that little bit proved to be enough for the Phillies to show caution Monday night in a 5-3 win over Tampa Bay. Franco was removed from the game with elbow soreness. Interim manager Pete Mackanin said he thinks Franco hurt his the elbow on a sharp diving catch and throw to end the sixth inning of the Phillies' fourth straight victory. Franco was evaluated after the game.

LAS VEGAS - Nik Stauskas has a message for 76ers fans. He wants them to know playing in the NBA has always been his dream since growing up in Canada. "This is what I was born to do," the shooting guard said. "I'm extremely hard working and that's the only reason I got here, just because of my hard work. "So hopefully the fans of Philadelphia understand they are getting a kid who is going to work his butt off to do everything he can to win games. " With those words, Stauskas might become an instant fan favorite after his trade from Sacramento became official Friday evening.

SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers' hope was to get out of the Utah Jazz Summer League unscathed, but a late development has prevented that. Second-round draft choice Richaun Holmes took a nasty fall on his elbow in the second half of Thursday's game against the host Jazz. Holmes didn't return to the game, and assistant coach Billy Lange said afterward he was getting X-rays as a precaution. Those X-rays revealed that the Bowling Green product had fractured his right elbow. He probably will be shelved for a couple of months.

WE USED to think there was no flopping in baseball. But what we saw Saturday in Washington was worthy of the NBA and NHL. We're talking about when the Pirates' Jose Tabata dropped his well-protected left elbow into the inside slider from the Nationals' Max Scherzer and let the pitch tick off the elbow guard. Nats catcher Wilson Ramos said Tabata's elbow was in the strike zone. But take your base. And take the perfect game, while you're at it. Scherzer was one strike from a perfecto at the time and "settled" for a no-hitter - fresh on the heels of a one-hitter.

ATLANTA - While he rehabilitated from the Tommy John surgery that ended his 2013 season after just two starts, Chad Billingsley said he could somewhat envision the day of his return to the mound. But when he tore his flexor tendon while he was on the comeback trail, Billingsley questioned whether he would ever get back. "And here I am right now," he said with a big smile Monday afternoon at Turner Field, "taking the field [Tuesday] and pitching on a big-league mound. " More than two years since his last major-league start, Billingsley will officially complete his long road back from consecutive elbow surgeries Tuesday night against the Braves.

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb has tendinitis in his right forearm and will miss his opening-day start against Baltimore. The team announcement Wednesday followed the 27-year-old righthander's removal after throwing three perfect innings in a 5-3 win over the Phillies on Tuesday. Cobb had an MRI after the game. The Rays hope Cobb can return in mid-to-late April. Ellsbury hurt Jacoby Ellsbury will be shut down for about one week after an MRI exam confirmed he has a mild oblique strain, the Yankees announced.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - On each of the last two mornings when Phillies pitchers gathered to play catch, Cliff Lee was absent. The discomfort in his pitching elbow had progressively worsened, so the 36-year-old lefthander weighed his options. Late Monday afternoon, the Phillies announced that Lee will try for a third time to non-surgically rehabilitate the tear in his common flexor tendon. Season-ending surgery, not recommended last summer, was endorsed by doctors after the latest setback.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The 30 pitchers in Phillies camp broke their circle and each took a few steps to pick up his glove. Cliff Lee found a spot among the two rows of hurlers and began playing catch with bullpen coach Rod Nichols. This was the start of Lee's throwing program Wednesday. As he tossed a baseball for about 10 minutes, pitching coach Bob McClure watched by his side. Afterward, the 36-year-old lefthander retreated to a back field and threw his first bullpen session since the elbow setback that has put in question his season and could lead to the end of his playing career.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cliff Lee will attempt to pitch through the tendon tear in his elbow that limited him to 13 starts last season. Despite months of rest and rehabilitation, the problem resurfaced Friday. Lee is 36 and pitching on maybe the final contract of an accomplished career. "It's hard to find a problem with going out there and just continuing to try to do it just to see what happens," he said. Surgery would sideline the lefthander for six to eight months, ending his season and perhaps his playing days.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - All Cliff Lee can do now is wait. Lee's MRI reports have been sent to Birmingham, Ala., the home of James Andrews. The orthopedic surgeon is the best in the world, Lee said. And the doctor's opinion could determine the Phillies lefthander's future in baseball. Lee said he will likely miss the season and possibly more if his left elbow requires surgery. A recommendation from Andrews is expected sometime this week. "It would be six to eight months out," Lee said.
