If the Phillies' 2012 season has proven anything, it's that the idea that a starting pitcher can only affect one of every five games is faulty. On May 29, Roy Halladay was placed on the 15-day DL with a lat strain. The Phillies were 26-24. With Halladay missing the remainder of the first half, the Phils went 11-26. Now, Halladay, who will begin a rehab assignment Thursday at Clearwater, wasn't lights out before he hit the disabled list. He had a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts, and the Phillies had lost seven of his last eight outings at the time of his injury. But it wasn't all his fault, either -- in four of those losses, Doc had a 2.89 ERA in 28 innings.
Phils' season turned with Halladay injury
