After allowing 9 runs in just two innings, the Phillies ace has finally come clean. Roy Halladay told the media about his shoulder discomfort after the loss on Sunday.
“I woke up, didn't really think anything of it, just regular soreness, it just kind of progressed over the last two weeks or so. It's right shoulder discomfort. I’m going to have it looked at here in the next few days, and once we get information from that we'll obviously let people know what's going on, but it's not something that I had before. It's something new this year.
“I felt good all spring, felt good all year, I just got up after that start in Pittsburgh and had soreness and just wasn't able to get rid of it. Like I said, we'll go to L.A, I think, and get it checked out, do some scans, get [the real doctor] to look at it and update you guys from there.
“But that's really all I have. We don't have a lot of information on it. We did some tests and obviously they are not completely conclusive as to what it is. There's a couple of different options and the scans, MRIs, CTs, that kind of stuff will give us more information from there and we'll address it then. But as far as moving forward, I really don't have too much for you. 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.”
