Roy Halladay pulled after three batters due to arm fatigue, done for season

Roy Halladay has seen better days.

According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, Halladay was pulled in the first inning of his start tonight against the Marlins after facing just three batters. It was the shortest start of his MLB career.

Halladay walked two batters in his brief outing and topped out at just 83 mph. Those are some troubling signs for someone coming off shoulder surgery, but the Phillies are calling it “right arm fatigue.” Either way, there’s a good chance he has thrown his final pitch this year and perhaps his last in a Phillies uniform. It’s a bummer to see one of the game’s best fall from grace so rapidly.

Halladay has a 4.55 ERA and 16/19 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings since coming off the disabled list and a 6.82 ERA and 51/36 K/BB ratio over 62 innings for the year. The 36-year-old will be a free agent this winter.

UPDATE: Halladay told Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer after the game that he will not pitch again this season.
