Phillies reliever Tom Gordon's season is in doubt after an MRI revealed damage to his ulnar collateral ligament, an injury that commonly requires Tommy John surgery.

Gordon will have a second opinion from California-based D. Lewis Ycum tomorrow before deciding how to proceed medically.

Phillies head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan said he was not optimistic that Gordon would be able to pitch again this season.

Gordon, already a month into a disabled list stint, visited team Dr. Michael Ciccotti on Thursday after feeling discomfort in his right elbow during a rehab appearance in Clearwater, Fla., Wednesday.
