PHOENIX - A day after his 36th birthday, Roy Halladay will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder.
The Phillies announced the news before last night's game against the Diamondbacks. Halladay had been mulling his options but decided to have the procedure done in Los Angeles on Wednesday by Neal ElAttrache, the doctor who examined him earlier this week.
"I liked him, I thought he was spot-on," Halladay said on Wednesday in San Francisco, when he announced that he would need surgery. "I had seen him before I did the MRIs. He pretty much told me before I even went in the MRI what he thought. And when the MRI came back, it was almost spot-on with what he said. I really liked him and I was very confident with him."
