Roy Halladay Injury Update: Phillies Pitcher Out 6-8 Weeks With Strained Lat, According To Report

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay is reportedly out six to eight weeks with a strained lat muscle (via Ken Rosenthal's Twitter). Halladay was scheduled to meet with doctors to have his shoulder examined on Tuesday.

Halladay was pulled from his last start on Sunday after completing just two innings. The shoulder soreness that was reported by the team was not a new injury for Halladay but was a lingering issue.

Halladay is 4-5 during the 2012 season with a 3.98 ERA. He has lost three of his last four starts. Halladay surrendered five home runs in his last three starts after giving up only one in his first eight starts.

With Halladay on the shelf for such a long stretch, the Phillies might have to make a roster move. Roy Oswalt, a former Phillie and free agent is reportedly off the market to the Rangers (via Dallas News).
