Gordon Hurt

Righthander Tom Gordon, who has been on the 15-day DL since July 6 because of inflammation in his right elbow, left tonight's rehab assignment for single-A Clearwater because of discomfort in the same elbow. Gordon will fly to Philadelphia tomorrow to be examined by team doctor Michael Ciccotti.

Obviously, that isn't a good sign. It's been exactly a month since Gordon went on the DL and this certainly seems to set him back further.
