Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer was told by Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. that Halladay’s second opinion is expected to confirm the initial diagnosis. The early estimate is that Halladay will miss six-to-eight weeks, but we’ll know a lot more about his progress after he tries throwing two weeks from now.
For what it’s worth, Amaro said Halladay was “symptom-free” while doing shoulder exercises this morning.
“He’s actually doing pretty well,” Amaro said. “He’s started doing some shoulder exercises, doing some upper body stuff now.”
Halladay had a 3.98 ERA and 56/14 K/BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings through 11 starts prior to being placed on the disabled list early last week. The 35-year-old right-hander has logged more innings (1,487) than anyone since the start of the 2006 season. CC Sabathia is second with 1,470 innings, though he’s on pace to pass Halladay in the next month.
