Word has come down that Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay will be placed on the disabled list due to a Grade 1/Grade 2 latissimus (shoulder) strain and is expected to miss six to eight weeks. He will be completely shut down for three weeks.
Of course the best news out of all of this is that it appears that the rotator cuff and labrum are in tact.
More on this as it develops...
