According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, free agent Roy Halladay has decided to retire from baseball.

Halladay dealt with shoulder issues throughout the 2013 season and will hang up his cleats for good at age 36 rather than trying to reestablish his value with a new team in 2014. The right-hander will finish up with a 203-105 career win-loss record and a 3.38 career ERA. He signed a one-day contract Monday with the team that drafted him -- the Blue Jays -- so that he could officially call it quits in that uniform.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro has been in contact with Roy Halladay's agent, Greg Landry, recently and remains interested in re-signing the right-hander.

After dealing with shoulder issues this season, Halladay might not sign until late this winter and seems likely to have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden deal. The veteran right-hander put up an ugly 6.82 ERA across 13 starts in 2013.

The Phillies will not make a qualifying offer to Roy Halladay.

They'll also obviously decline his $20 million option for 2014, making him a free agent. Halladay really struggled down the stretch after returning from shoulder surgery and was eventually shut down with a "dead arm." He might have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden deal this winter.

Roy Halladay (arm) will not pitch again this season.

It comes after he lasted just three batters during Monday's start before being removed due to a "dead arm." Halladay also noted that he's recently been battling an illness related to his diet. The good news is that he's not feeling any pain in his shoulder or elbow, but his Phillies career, in all likelihood, is over. The 36-year-old will be a free agent this winter.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said that Roy Halladay is dealing with a "dead arm."

Sandberg noted that Halladay doesn't have any pain in his shoulder or elbow, which is obviously good news. The skipper is unsure whether Doc will make his final start of the season, but it would be a surprise if he does. Halladay lasted only three batters Monday before being pulled.

Roy Halladay left Monday's start against the Marlins with right arm fatigue.

It's a vague diagnosis, but more should be known about Halladay's status eventually. The veteran right-hander walked two of the three batters he faced Monday and topped out at 83 mph. Doc seems unlikely to make another start this season.

Roy Halladay left Monday's start against the Marlins with an apparent injury.

Halladay lasted just three batters, walking two and retiring one on a foulout. It was clear from the get-go that something wasn't right, as his fastball was topping out at 83 mph. The Phillies should provide an update on the right-hander's status shortly.

Roy Halladay held the Marlins to one run across six innings in Tuesday's 6-4 victory.

It wasn't that pretty, as Halladay walked three while striking out two and hit another batter (he's hit six in five starts since coming off the DL). However, he gave up only four hits, and just one of them went for extra bases. Yes, it came against the Marlins, but Doc will take it given his previous struggles. He'll try to keep it going next week in a rematch in Miami.

Roy Halladay yielded five runs -- four earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Thursday against the Padres.

Halladay, who was pushed back a couple of days due to flu-like symptoms, managed to strike out six tonight, but he also walked five and hit a batter. He still looks nothing like the Halladay of old, and he can't be trusted in mixed leagues.

Roy Halladay's next start has been pushed back to Thursday due to the flu.

Halladay was originally supposed to get the ball Tuesday, but the Phillies are giving him a little extra time since he's under the weather. Tyler Cloyd will start Tuesday, while Cliff Lee will move up a day to Wednesday.
