According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, veteran starter Roy Halladay has announced his retirement. He will sign a one-day contract with Toronto, so he can retire as a Blue Jay.

Halladay made only 13 starts for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2013 and underwent shoulder surgery in May to repair a torn labrum and repair a rotator cuff in his right shoulder.

The 36-year old two-time Cy Young Award winner had a brilliant career that included eight All-Star games and tossing a no-hitter in the playoffs against the Cincinnati Reds in October of 2010.

He finishes his career with a 203-105 record good for a .659 winning percentage, and 3.38 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 390 career starts.

Congratulations, Doc… You were one of the all-time greats…
