Holy cow, I did not see this bombshell coming.
Two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay has signed a one-year deal with the Toronto Blue Jays and will announce his retirement in a news conference with his former team at 12:30 p.m.
Over a 16-year career, Halladay has a 203-105 career record with a 3.38 ERA. For much of the late 2000s, he was regarded as the best pitcher in baseball.
He spent the last four seasons with Philadelphia, and is hanging them up on the heels of a disastrous 2013 where he struggled with bone spurs, a partially torn rotator cuff, and fraying of the labrum.
More react on the announcement to come.
