PHILADELPHIA — Phillies RHP Roy Halladay likely is headed to the DL after acknowledging he has a sore right shoulder.
Sunday, he allowed nine runs on four hits, four walks and two hit batters over 2 1/3 innings of a 14-2 loss to Miami. Afterward, the two-time Cy Young winner said he will be examined this week.
"It's not something that I had before," said Halladay, who in Tuesday's 14-2 loss to Cleveland allowed eight runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings. "I felt good all spring. I had soreness in there and just wasn't able to get rid of it."
Halladay, who turns 36 on May 14, made a statement but did not take questions. He said he started feeling discomfort the morning after an April 24 outing against Pittsburgh.
"I woke up and didn't really think anything of it; just regular soreness," said Halladay, 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA over seven starts. "It has kind of progressed over the last two weeks or so."
Braves: C Brian McCann completed his rehab at Triple A from October surgery for torn cartilage in his right shoulder and will be activated today.
Marlins: OF Austin Kearns went on the bereavement list and will miss 3-7 days.
Nationals: LF Bryce Harper was ejected by third-base umpire John Hirschbeck after a checked-swing third strike. He stared at Hirschbeck for a few moments and dropped his bat.
Padres: LHP Clayton Richard went on the DL with an intestinal virus. Manager Bud Black said he lost 12 pounds over two weeks.
Pirates: Tests on RHP Charlie Morton's right arm revealed no damage. Morton, recovering from elbow-ligament replacement surgery, left his Triple-A rehab start Friday after three innings with discomfort. He will play catch today and hopes to throw off a mound this week.
Red Sox: RH reliever Andrew Bailey, out a week, will have an MRI exam on his sore biceps.
White Sox: RHP Jake Peavy will miss his start today, his second in a row, because of back spasms. LHP Chris Sale will start.
