The Philadelphia Phillies have announced that starting pitcher Roy Halladay will not make his start Tuesday night due to flu-like symptoms according to NBC Sports.com's Matthew Pouliot. CSNPhilly.com's Jim Salisbury confirmed the news in a late afternoon tweet. Phils update rotation. Cloyd tonight, Lee tomorrow, Halladay on Thursday. Halladay gets extra time after being ill. — Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyCSN) September 10, 2013 Tyler Cloyd will pitch Tuesday, and Halladay will try again Thursday. Halladay has made only 10 starts this season due to a torn rotator cuff and surgery to repair it. He was on the disabled list from May 6 to August 25. He is 3-4 with a 7.19 ERA overall, but most of his hard times came before his surgery. Two of his three starts since his return, though, had Halladay looking more like his old self, allowing two runs in six innings to Arizona and one run in five innings to Washington. Halladay is playing for a contract for 2014. He has a vesting option with the Phillies, but he will end the season far short of the 225 innings pitched this year for it to kick in. Halladay has pitched only 51.1 innings so far, and with only a few more starts left, he appears very likely to become a free agent after the season. It is highly unlikely that he will land a deal anywhere near the $20 million he is making this year, but he could still look good for potential contenders in 2014.
