Jays say sore right shoulder not serious
After being scratched from his start Tuesday night, the right-hander had his shoulder examined and no serious damage was found.
"We got some good news," Blue Jays manager Carlos Tosca said. "He's just got some inflammation in his right shoulder. We're almost certain that he will make his following start.
"Thank God it's nothing serious."
Halladay was 5-4 with a 3.58 ERA. Last season, he posted career highs with 36 starts, 22 wins, nine complete games, two shutouts, and 204 strikeouts.
Jason Kershner pitch in Halladay's spot on Sunday at Oakland. In Kershner's first career start Tuesday night, he allowed six hits and four runs while lasting only 3 2/3 innings.
