 TORONTO (AP) -Former Cy Young winner Roy Halladay is expected to miss four to six weeks because of appendicitis, the latest bad break for the struggling Toronto Blue Jays.
Halladay was set to have an appendectomy Friday night.
Halladay lasted only five innings Thursday night and was hit hard in an 8-0 loss to Boston. The 2003 AL Cy Young winner is 4-2 with a 4.37 ERA in eight starts.
The rout by Boston was the Blue Jays' ninth straight loss and left them in last place in the AL East.
On Thursday, Toronto lost closer B.J. Ryan for the year after he had ligament replacement surgery on his left elbow.
