Roy Halladay will get a chance to pitch in Toronto in 2010. It just won’t be as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays, Philadelphia Phillies and Seattle Mariners finally completed a three team trade on Wednesday that sends Halladay to the Phillies and pitcher Cliff Lee from the Phillies to the Mariners along with a few prospects heading to the Blue Jays.
Here’s how the whole trade breaks down:
- RHP Roy Halladay (from Toronto)
- RHP Phillippe Aumont (from Seattle)
- OF Tyson Gillies (from Seattle)
- RHP Juan Ramirez (from Seattle)
- $6 million cash (from Toronto)
- LHP Cliff Lee (from Philadelphia)
Blue Jays get:
- C Travis d’Arnaud (from Philadelphia)
- RHP Kyle Drabek (from Philadelphia)
- OF Michael Taylor (from Philadelphia)
The Blue Jays then flipped Taylor to the Oakland A’s for 1B/3B Brett Wallace.
Halladay waived his no trade clause to go to Philadelphia and also agreed to a 3 year, $60 million contract extension.
In 12 years with the Blue Jays, Halladay was 148-76 with a 3.73 ERA in 313 games (287 starts). In those 287 starts, Halladay has 48 complete games and 15 shutouts.
If the Phillies rotation works out, Halladay will get a chance to pitch at Rogers Centre in Toronto when the Phillies visit there from June 25-27, 2010.
