Is Halladay finished for 2012?

Phils reshuffling rotation, but no word on when Roy Halladay will pitch next.

When the Phils return to host the Nationals, it's Cole Hamels on Tuesday and Kyle Kendrick on Wednesday. Wednesday would have been Tyler Cloyd's turn in the rotation.

The Phils have "TBA" listed for Thursday.

Roy Halladay has followed Kendrick in the rotation. But the "TBA" means they could plug Cloyd in Thursday instead of Halladay.

Halladay, of course, is coming off the second shortest start of his career. He also recently saw a doctor about spasms in his right shoulder.

But what it says on a piece of paper distributed throuhgout the pressbox two hours before game time on Sunday doesn't necessarily mean Halladay is finished for 2012.

Pitching coach Rich Dubee said the team was undecided how they were moving forward. But perhaps there will be more clarity following Sunday's game.

If the Phils lose, they are in danger of falling five games back of the NL's second wild card with nine games to play.
