OAKLAND, Calif. -- Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Roy Halladay was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, two days after the Cy Young Award
winner was scratched from a scheduled start against the Seattle Mariners.
Halladay missed Tuesday's start at Seattle after experiencing soreness in his shoulder. The move is retroactive to May 28, so he can return June 11
when Toronto opens a three-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Halladay is 5-4 with a 3.58 ERA in 11 starts this season. Last year, he posted career highs of 22 wins, 36 starts, nine complete games, 204 strikeouts
and 266 innings.
Jason Kershner started in place of Halladay on Tuesday and lasted only 3 2/3 innings, allowing four runs and six hits. To replace Halladay on the
roster, reliever Bob File was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse. After opening the season on the DL, File was 1-0 with four saves and a 0.51 ERA in 11
outings for the SkyChiefs.
