Roy Halladay Out 6-8 Weeks [POLL]

In a season where Phillies fans thought pitching would offset a troubled offense, we present the worst possible news a Phillies fans could hear — ace Roy Halladay is on the shelf for upwards of a month and a half.

Roy Halladay is expected to miss six to eight weeks because of a right latissimus dorsi strain, the latest major setback for the five-time NL East champions.

Halladay was put on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, two days after he was hit hard and pulled from a start in St. Louis after just two innings because of shoulder soreness.

This is the latest blow to team paying without Ryan Howard and Chase Utley, both out for unknown amount of time with injuries.

The 35-year-old workhorse was off to his worst start in years, 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts.

The good news is that no surgery is required, and the Phillies offense is starting to come around a bit. Also, Vance Worley is getting closer to his return from the DL.
