Halladay to have surgery

SAN FRANCISCO — For Roy Halladay, arthroscopic surgery on his troublesome pitching shoulder became the best-case scenario when he had prepared himself for the worst: an injury that would force his retirement when he's far from ready.

Halladay, 35, will have a procedure in his right shoulder to repair a partially torn rotator cuff and remove a bone spur. He also has some fraying of the labrum.

"I think we did all the right things," Halladay said. "Now I feel I have something to grasp onto, something to move forward with. I don't feel as lost as before. I feel like there's some answers."

On the 15-day disabled list since Monday because of inflammation in the shoulder, the two-time Cy Young Award winner met with Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Halladay said Wednesday that he expects to have surgery next week to give himself the best chance of returning this season.

HANLEY DOWN AGAIN: Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez was diagnosed with a strained left hamstring and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. Ramirez went on the disabled list Saturday, five days after being activated.

A'S: RF Josh Reddick (sprained right wrist) went on the 15-day disabled list, where he joined CFs Coco Crisp (hamstring) and Chris Young (quadriceps).

BRAVES: RF Jason Heyward, who had an emergency appendectomy April 22, was cleared to begin a rehab assignment.

CUBS: RH reliever Kyuji Fujikawa, out since April 13 with a strained right forearm, said he felt fine after pitching two scoreless innings in a rehab outing for Double-A Tennessee.

D'BACKS: RH closer J.J. Putz went on the 15-day disabled list because of a right elbow strain, and RH reliever Will Harris was recalled from Triple-A Reno. RHP Heath Bell will fill in for Putz as closer.

ORIOLES: 2B Brian Roberts will have surgery on his ailing right hamstring, adding six weeks to his time on the disabled list. Roberts was placed on the DL with a strained right hamstring April 5.

ROCKIES: SS Troy Tulowitzki was held out for a second straight day, but because of soggy weather and not soreness in his legs. Tulowitzki said he felt good after running before the game against the Yankees.
