Those Fightin’ Phils continue to get healthier.

According to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, Roy Halladay threw his second bullpen session since landing on the disabled list Tuesday at Citi Field.

He felt no abnormal discomfort during or after the workout and is on pace to return to Philadelphia’s starting rotation shortly after the All-Star break.

The Phillies seem comfortable with the idea of allowing Halladay to skip a minor league rehab assignment, instead having him get stretched out in simulated games.

“Doc” had a 3.98 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 56/14 K/BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings before straining his right lat.

      At this point they’re going to need a Saturn V rocket to climb up the standings.

    Yes, it may be too late, besides, the Phils have many holes to fill. I don’t see them making a run.

    I think they’re done. This Phils team reminds me of the Mets teams of the late 80s. One title when they should have had at least two, maybe three with their talent. Then injuries and age set in. Farm system is dry. I see rebuilding starting next year.
