Roy Halladay Leaves Game With Injury Update…

Update

According to MLB.com, Roy Halladay will be placed on the 15 Day DL on Thursday. Halladay experienced some discomfort during his bullpen session today, which prompted the move. Halladay is eligible to come off the DL on June 28th and expects to be ready to go.

Anytime you lose your ace for two weeks is a big blow. The Blue Jays already have starting rotation problems and losing Halladay is just adding to that mess.

The Blue Jays finish up against the Phillies and then play the Nationals, the Reds and the Phillies again. Playing the Nationals and the Reds at home should keep the Blue Jays afloat until Halladay comes back against the Phillies.

Original Post

Toronto Blue Jays’ ace Roy Halladay left tonight’s game in the forthinning against the Florida Marlins with a groin injury. 

After Marlins OF Jeremy Hermida fouled a pitch off down the leftfield line, Halladay stepped off the mound and appeared to be in some pain. Rod Barajas, Cito Gasten and the trainer came to the mound to check on Halladay. After a couple of minutes of conversing on the mound, Halladay came out of the game.

I am watching the game and the initial reports are the injury doesn’t appear to be serious. This would be a devastating loss to the Blue Jays if this turns into something more.
