San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies placed pitcher Roy Halladay on the 15-day disabled list Monday with right shoulder inflammation.

The move comes just one day after Halladay was shelled for nine runs on four hits and four walks in just 2 1/3 innings against Miami.

Following the game, the right-hander revealed he has been dealing with a sore shoulder since April 25.

"It started the morning after I pitched against Pittsburgh (on April 24)," Halladay said. "I woke up and didn't really think anything of it. It was just kind of regular soreness. This kind of progressed over the last two weeks or so. It's right shoulder discomfort.

"This is something new this spring. I felt good all spring. I felt good all year. I just got up after that start against Pittsburgh and had soreness in there and wasn't able to get rid of it."

Halladay, who turns 36 on May 14, is expected to fly to Los Angeles to be examined by Dr. Lewis Yocum.

Over seven starts this season, the two-time Cy Young Award winner is 2-4 with an 8.65 earned run average.

The Phillies recalled left-hander Joe Savery to temporarily take Halladay's place on the 25-man roster. A replacement for Halladay's spot in the starting rotation will be named before Friday's game in Arizona against the Diamondbacks. Candidates to make the start include Triple-A left-hander Adam Morgan and right-hander Tyler Cloyd.
