MIAMI (AP) — Phillies ace Cliff Lee had an MRI exam on his sore throwing elbow, raising concerns the left-hander might become the latest major league pitcher sidelined by a serious injury.

Lee remained in Philadelphia to undergo the test after pitching 6 2-3 innings Sunday to beat Cincinnati. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. says Lee has experienced elbow discomfort for the past three weeks.

The 35-year-old Lee is 4-4 this season with a 3.18 ERA in 68 innings.

The Phillies awaited test results as they began a series in Miami on Tuesday night. More than a dozen major league pitchers this year already have undergone Tommy John elbow surgery, including All-Stars Patrick Corbin, Josh Johnson, Matt Moore and Jose Fernandez.
