Roy Halladay may have thrown his last pitch in a Phillies uniform.

The 36-year-old walked two of the three batters he faced on Monday night and topped out at just 83 mph. The Phillies immediately announced arm fatigue was the cause for Halladay's poor outing, but that is a troublesome sign considering he underwent shoulder surgery earlier this year.

Halladay entered Monday's contest in Miami with a 6.82 ERA on the season with 51 strikeouts and 36 walks over 62 innings. 

The two time Cy Young Award winner is in the final season of a three-year deal worth $60 million.
