Roy Halladay will announce retirement
Roy Halladay will end his 16-year career as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Halladay will sign an honorary one-day contract so that he can finish his career with the Blue Jays, who drafted him in the first round of the 1995 amateur draft. The pitcher spent the first 11 seasons of his career with Toronto.
Halladay missed several months last season after having shoulder surgery and was largely ineffective in his limited appearances for the Philadelphia Phillies, where he has spent the last four seasons.
The two-time Cy Young award winner finishes his career with an ERA of 3.38 and a 1.178 WHIP. He also threw a no-hitter for the Phillies in his first appearance in a playoff game.
Halladay and Blue Jays will announce a 1-day contract at press conference so he retires as a jay—
