Phillies Notebook: Halladay placed on 15-day DL

Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies Halladay has just a 8.65 ERA this season through seven starts.

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. hinted the move was likely after Sunday’s debacle. He made it official Monday when the team placed injured starter Roy Halladay on the 15-day disabled list.

Halladay, who expressed discomfort in his throwing shoulder Sunday, is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA through seven starts in 2013. He has surrendered 17 earned runs in his last six innings of work, both resulting in 14-2 defeats.

The Phillies are in San Francisco this week as part of a West Coast swing. Halladay was scheduled to see a specialist in Los Angeles.

I felt good all spring. I had soreness in there and just wasn’t able to get rid of it,” Halladay told reporters Sunday.

Joe Savery was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take his spot.
