Lake Buena Vista, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Right-hander Roy Halladay will
reportedly call it a career on Monday. CBS Sports is reporting that the two-
time Cy Young Award winner will sign a one-day contract with Toronto and
retire as a Blue Jay.
Halladay made just 13 starts for the Philadelphia Phillies last season, as he
underwent surgery in May to repair a partially torn rotator cuff and remove a
bone spur. Halladay also struggled with a reduction in velocity and pitched
to a 6.82 ERA on the year.
The 36-year-old's 2013 campaign is a far cry from a brilliant career that saw
him win Cy Young Awards in both leagues, while finishing in the top-five of
that balloting seven times.
Over 16 seasons with the Blue Jays and Phillies, Halladay posted a 203-105
record, a 3.38 ERA, and 2,117 strikeouts over 2,749 1/3 innings. Halladay led
his league in innings pitched four times and threw 67 completes games (leading
the league seven times) and 20 shutouts (leading the league four times).
Of all his amazing accomplishments, none may be bigger than when in 2010 as a
member of the Phillies he threw a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in his
first postseason start.
