Veteran starter Roy Halladay announced earlier today that he will sign a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays in order to retire as a member of the Jays. The 36-year-old righty announced his retirement after suffering shoulder injuries in the past two seasons. Halladay struggled on the mound in 2013, posting a 4-5 record with a poor 6.82 ERA along with a dismal WHIP of 1.47 in 62 innings. Over his illustrious career, Doc Halladay has posted a stellar record of 203-105 with a solid 3.38 ERA and good 1.18 WHIP. The native of Denver, Colorado, won two Cy Young awards, one with the Jays in 2003 and one with the Phillies in 2010.
