Bob Elliott, who has been covering the Roy Halladay deal for the Toronto Sun, reports that one of the seven prospects involved in the trade has failed their physical.
According to Shi Davidi, another Canadian writer, Phillippe Aumont, who has had injury problems, passed his physical. As we know, Kyle Drabek has undergone Tommy John surgery and was shut down early this season as a precautionary measure, this after posting a 5.02 ERA in five August starts. Michael Taylor also had his season shortened with an oblique injury, but played winter ball, appearing in 19 games before departing in early November. During his stint in Mexico, he was missed 10 days with mild elbow strain, according to Scott Lauber of the News-Journal.
Update: Larry Stone of the Seattle Times is hearing it's not a Mariners prospect who failed a physical, meaning it is either Michael Taylor, Kyle Drabek, Travis d'Arnaud or Brett Wallace, the player going to Toronto from Oakland. Stone adds that the news is not a dealbreaker.
New update: Andy Martino of the Inquirer tweets "Official announcement of Halladay trade today still not out of the question."
