While losing Halladay for two months is never a good thing, the injury could have been much, much worse. Halladay expects to be back by August, just in time for the Phillies to (hopefully) make a playoff run. Since he has been dealing with shoulder issues all season, if he comes back at full strength, the time off could even be a good thing for Halladay.
With Vance Worley also out, the Phillies rotation suddenly has a hole. Could this mean the Phillies sign Roy Oswalt? Since he is apparently about to sign with the Rangers, barring a trade, the Phillies will have to look within for their 5th starter.
