Phillies | Roy Halladay to DL

The Philadelphia Phillies placed SP Roy Halladay (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation Monday, May 6, and recalled SP Joe Savery from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Halladay admitted he was having shoulder problems after being embarrassed by the Miami Marlins Sunday. The former Cy Young winner had a stretch of three starts where he looked as though he was figuring some things out, but after his latest disaster and now this trip to the DL, we have to seriously wonder if he'll ever be able to pull things together for stretches this season. Halladay's body has not allowed him reinvent himself with his new limitations considered. He has minimal value in mixed leagues now that he's injured.

Savery will be used out of the bullpen. Tyler Cloyd or Ethan Martin makes the most sense to be called up and take Halladay's place in the starting rotation if you're searching for pitching in NL-only leagues.
