PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies have placed two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay on the 15-day disabled list because of an injured right shoulder.
Halladay will be replaced on the roster by left-hander Joe Savery. The move was announced before the Phillies opened a three-game series in San Francisco on Monday night.
Halladay is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA in seven starts this season. He allowed nine runs in 2 1-3 innings against Miami on Sunday.
Halladay expects to see Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles this week. The 35-year-old right-hander is in the final season of his contract with the Phillies, making $20 million this year.
