PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Roy Halladay has discomfort in his right shoulder and the struggling Philadelphia Phillies pitcher is headed to Los Angeles for tests.
Halladay was roughed up Sunday by the Miami Marlins in a 14-2 defeat, his second poor outing in a row. After the game, the two-time Cy Young Award winner acknowledged he has been pitching with a sore shoulder. He said he will be examined this week in Los Angeles by Dr. Lewis Yocum.
Halladay, who turns 36 this month, said it's not the same injury that sidelined him for a while last season. He did not take questions from reporters after the game.
The right-hander said he started feeling discomfort the morning after an April 24 start against Pittsburgh. He has made two ineffective starts since.
