According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Cliff Lee is likely headed to the Phillies.  The deal would reportedly send Lee and OF Ben Francisco to the Phils, and in return the Indians would get 4 prospects (Single A RHP Jason Knapp, AAA RHP Carlos Carrasco, SS Jason Donald, and C Lou Marson).  No cash is included in the deal.

This gives the Phillies not only another solid starting pitcher, but a nice, young right-handed outfielder to come off the bench.  World Series repeat, anyone?
