NEW YORK - A Phillies team official said that Roy Halladay will have his injured shoulder examined tomorrow, but the details are still being worked out.

He has to wait until tomorrow because of the Memorial Day holiday.

According to the team, it is not yet known whether Halladay will be examined in New York or return to Philadelphia. Halladay is with the team in New York for today’s opening of the three-game series with the Mets at Citi Field.

The righthander had to leave after the second inning of Sunday’s 8-3 loss in St. Louis with soreness in the back of his right shoulder.

Is it time to panic about Roy Halladay’s sore right shoulder?
Yes. This is Negadelphia.
No. He is the rock of this franchise.
Maybe. I’m too nervous to decide.

Halladay took the loss on Sunday, allowing a first-inning grand slam to Yadier Molina. He was lifted after two innings by pitching coach Rich Dubee and Halladay told reporters afterwards he felt it was the right call.

Halladay is 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA this season.
