Roy Halladay left his start Sunday for the Philadelphia Phillies after one inning because of a stomach virus.
Halladay allowed one hit and a walk against the Baltimore Orioles before leaving the dugout before the start of the second inning. He was sweating profusely when he was pitching and at one point bent over behind the mound.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner was roughed up in his last start and said he felt ''lethargic'' afterward. He insisted he had no injury. Halladay missed almost two months last year with a shoulder problem.

With there already mass panic over Roy Halladay's reduced velocity, Phillies fans got another scare today. After a first inning in which Halladay allowed one walk, Halladay did not return to the mound for inning two. Zach Miner replaced Halladay on the mound. Luckily for Phillies fans, it was just...
Eldemire and Duffy with Lakewood in 2012
Following releases last week that didn’t catch many off guard (details here, here and here), the Phillies began some more house cleaning on Sunday when they cut ties with a pair of players that many people thought were not at risk of losing their spots in the system, as first baseman Chris Duffy and outfielder Gauntlett Eldemire were both...
Nick Cafardo slipped this tidbit in his morning post over at the Boston Globe this morning:
(Betancourt) has improved his visibility, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see a team deal for him before the season. The best thing that happened for Betancourt is Jimmy Rollins playing in the WBC. Betancourt is also in good shape, which has been a challenge for him in the past. With a March...

We’re a little bit over halfway through Major League Spring Training, and not including the depth guys that were added to the roster late for depth, the Phillies have eight non-roster invitees still in camp. Let’s reassess their chances.
Still the Clubhouse Favorite...

PN’s Jay Floyd has learned that the Phillies have traded righty minor league hurler Michael Cisco to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The 25-year-old was originally selected in the 36th round of the 2008 draft and is the grandson of former Phillies pitching coach Galen Cisco.
Updates to follow as more details on this deal become available...
Mentioning the term ''window of opportunity'' to the Philadelphia Phillies results in a wide range of reactions.
Ryan Howard scoffs at it. Cole Hamels understands it. Ruben Amaro Jr. dismisses it. Roy Halladay accepts it. Charlie Manuel wants to use it as motivation.
The Phillies are no longer the team to beat in the NL East after capturing five straight division...
The 2013 Phillies Spring Training is turning in a soap opera of sorts. Strange things are afoot. A recent “trade” report may be the strangest of them all.
According to a tweet from Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com and a short note in a MLB.com article, the Phillies have literally given away a solid minor league pitcher to the Angels. Right-hander Michael Cisco averaged a 1.70 ERA...

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Doc Halladay looks to bounce back after a, quite frankly, scarey outing against the Baltimore Orioles. Jason Hammel is the hurler on the opposing bump for the O’s. The Phils...
*The Phillies gave away minor league pitcher, Michael Cisco. Not released, not waived, not traded, but literally given to the Angels. No compensation. Very altruistic of them. The 25 year old has been amazing since converting to relief. Over the past two seasons in Double and Triple-A he has gone 13-3, in 69 appearances, pitching 137.1 innings, with 109 strikeouts, a 1.70...
Of the many amazing features of Bright House Field is the
legendary Tiki Bar in left field. With a general admission ticket, a fan can
take in a game from the comfort of a bar stool that overlooks left field. Every
once and a while, a bartender at this bar will ring a huge bell indicating a
big tip, or maybe even a home run.
Is it Happy Hour yet?
One of the more interesting features...
In a barnburner of an exhibition game, the Phillies stuck nine runs to Kris Medlen in five innings but could never overcome the lead surrendered by Rodrigo Lopez and the Phils lost 17-10 in Orlando.
The Phillies offense has been running on all cylinders and today was no exception. Dom Brown drove a 1-2 Medlen pitch to deep right center in the fifth for a two run home run...
On a weekend where John Lannan and Raul Valdes were firing and Dom Brown was slugging, the Phillies roster really wasn't changed much. I think the main questions that are out there still exist, and none of the main spots in question are settled. Here's the good news- De Fratus,...
Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all! What started out as a disastrous outing for one Roy Halladay turned into an excellent game for the Phillies bullpen against the Baltimore Orioles. In one inning, Doc allowed one hit, walked one, and struck out one before heading into the clubhouse. It was...
