Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay has been placed on the disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder. Halladay has been dealing with discomfort in his shoulder since his April 24 start against the Pirates but did not inform the Phillies of any problems until after Sunday’s outing. On Sunday Halladay allowed nine runs in 2 1/3 innings raising his ERA to 8.65 on the season. Halladay will visit Dr. Lewis Yocum this week for a examination of his right arm. “We’ll see how it plays out in the next few days. As soon as I can get in to see him we’ll get that done and try to get you guys information as soon as we can.” said Halladay after Sunday’s game, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. With Halladay going to the disabled list the Phillies have called up left handed pitcher Joe Savery from Triple-A. Saver, 27, has been pitching as a reliever for Lehigh Valley. He will likely return to the minors once the Phillies decide on a replacement for Halladay.
