According to ESPN's Pedro Gomez, the Phillies and Diamondbacks are discussing a trade that would send lefty Cliff Lee to Arizona for outfielder Justin Upton.

There'd be money going to the D'Backs along with Lee. It's a trade that satisfies Arizona's desire for a front-line starter while helping the Phillies improve their offense and get a little younger. Lee is owed $25 million per year through the end of the 2015 season. He holds a $27.5 million vesting option for 2016.
