The Phillies have moved Roy Halladay back a day and he will now start on Wednesday, with Tyler Cloyd taking his scheduled start on Tuesday.

On Friday Halladay came down with a bug and pitching coach Rich Dubee said at the time that it was possible he and Cloyd could trade places.

When the Phillies begin a three-game series on Tuesday with visiting San Diego, Cloyd (2-3, 3.57) will face RHP Andrew Cashner (8-8, 3.45).

Halladay (3-4, 7.19) will face LHP Eric Stults (8-13, 4.07) on Wednesday.
