Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay had surgery Wednesday on his right shoulder in Los Angeles, the team said in a statement Thursday.
Halladay, 36, underwent an arthroscopic procedure during which his shoulder was evaluated and worked on. Team physician Michael Ciccotti said Halladay "underwent debridement of his labrum and rotator cuff as well as removal of an inflamed bursa."
The statement read that Halladay can begin throwing in six to eight weeks, barring any setbacks.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner went 2-4 this season with an 8.65 ERA. He is in the final year of his contract, and hopes to return this season.
