Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay (shoulder) will need three months to recover after undergoing shoulder surgery this week. Dr. Neal ElAttrache said the surgery "identified what we anticipated," so there were no surprises. However, Dr. Michael Ciccotti was hesitant to say that Halladay would come back this season. "There are a lot of ifs between now and then," Ciccotti said of Halladay's return. "Does he get his motion back? Does he feel strong again? How is he when he is throwing a ball? There are a lot of things between now and then that might prevent that from happening. But we remain cautiously optimistic about it." Halladay's bursa sac, which was removed during surgery, should grow back naturally and shouldn't be a problem in the future. If he doesn't have any setbacks, he could be throwing in six to eight weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Halladay will be out for an extended period of time, but there are no guarantees he'll come back this year, let alone be effective. That's a big gamble to take if you're willing to hang onto him. The more shallow the league, the less incentive you have to hang onto hope.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay (shoulder) underwent arthroscopic surgery and a debridement of his labrum and rotator cuff Wednesday, May 15, and he could start a throwing program in six to eight weeks. Halladay also had his inflamed bursa sac removed. He's likely to be out at least until after the All-Star break. Halladay is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA in seven starts this year.
Fantasy Tip: Halladay can probably be dropped in shallow mixed leagues. In deeper formats, though, it's at least worth considering whether you'll leave him on a DL spot for later in the season. There is a slight chance that this surgery can fix some of the mechanical issues he was dealing with and make him effective later this year. If you're willing to wait and find out, tuck him away.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay (shoulder) is scheduled to have shoulder surgery Wednesday, May 15, in Los Angeles. The surgery is scheduled to repair a bone spur in his shoulder, a partial tear in his rotator cuff and some fraying in his labrum. Halladay believes he can return in three months, but a timetable likely will not be made until the damage in his shoulder is known.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Halladay is able to pitch again this season, it likely will not be until July or August based on his three-month timetable. Halladay could be stashed on the disabled list in hopes he can come back as an improved pitcher after the surgery.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a partial tear of the rotator cuff and a fraying of the labrum that has resulted from it rubbing against a bone spur in his right shoulder. He'll have surgery to clean up these problems. Halladay told the media that he has no timetable for a return and hasn't decided where he'll have surgery. He added that some pitchers have returned in three months but that he won't have a timetable until after the procedure. If the diagnosis is confirmed at that time, then the right-hander has a good chance to pitch again this season. Doctors are optimistic about Halladay's case to return in 2013.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the cleanup should result in something close to full health for him, eventually, and he figures to be effective, although maybe not dominant, again once that happens. There are no guarantees, however. Halladay is in the final year of a deal that includes a 2014 option, and it seems unlikely that the Phils will pick it up. The right-hander is likely to do anything he can to pitch again this season, though, and he'll have plenty of motivation. It's hard to say how effective he'll be. Those in shallow and medium-depth mixed leagues have no reason to hold him and find out, but those who have the room and little to lose should be tempted.

Fantasy Tip: An announcement is expected later today.

Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said SP Roy Halladay's (shoulder) replacement, in the short term, will come from within the Phillies organization. If Halladay's absence is long, Amaro said, he might explore an outside solution. "There's some players we'll keep an eye out on," Amaro said.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay has used his cut fastball significantly less than his normal fastball this season, mainly because hitters have done serious damage to the pitch. He's already allowed as many home runs (five) with his cutter than he did all of last season. Opponents are batting .433 with a slugging percentage of 1.067 in at-bats that end with Halladay's cut fastball.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Halladay had three solid outings before his disaster in Cleveland last night. With his new limitations as a pitcher near the end of his career, he will probably continue to have some poor results littered around typical Halladay performances. Be ready for that.
