Roy Halladay leaves spring start after just one inning

Between the spring velocity concerns and last year’s shoulder issues, there are already plenty of reasons to worry about how Roy Halladay will fare in 2013.

This, hopefully, turns out to be nothing at all.

Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports that Halladay lasted only one inning in his Grapefruit League start Sunday afternoon against the Orioles because of a stomach virus. He allowed a hit, a walk and struck out one in the first frame and was then relieved by Zach Miner at the start of the second.

Halladay entered Sunday’s outing with a 7.36 ERA in 11 spring innings. He says his arm feels fine.
