Phillies | Roy Halladay headed for DL

Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay (shoulder) was pounded for nine runs in just 2 1/3 innings Sunday, May 5, in a loss against the Miami Marlins. After the game, Halladay informed the team that he has pain in the shoulder. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Halladay will likely undergo diagnostic tests sometime this week in California where the team opens a three-game set in San Francisco. Halladay said the plan is to meet with renowned Dr. Lewis Yocum. He said the pain in his shoulders started after his April 24 start. "I woke up, didn't really think anything of it, just regular soreness, it just kind of progressed over the last two weeks or so," Halladay said.

Fantasy Tip: Halladay should obviously be reserved in all fantasy leagues. If and when he hits the DL, Adam Morgan, Tyler Cloyd or Ethan Martin would be candidates to come up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Halladay's rotation spot.
