The trade is highly complex.
According to and Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman, a three-team trade in which Philadelphia would receive Roy and Seattle would receive Cliff Lee is in the works. Heyman also says the trade is unlikely to be finished today.
What the Mariners would be giving up in return is unclear.
Most likely, Cliff Lee will be traded but there's no official word yet.

Cliff Lee fininshed 14-13 last season with a 3.22 ERA after a dismal start. He has pitched more than 200 innings in four of the last five seasons. He was the AL Cy Young winner in 2008 while with Cleveland.
