Chase Utley and Ryan Howard are already back in the Phillies’ lineup and now there’s some more good injury news in Philadelphia, as Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that Roy Halladay has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Thursday at Single-A.

Halladay has been out since late May with a shoulder injury, but reported no problems following multiple bullpen sessions last week and convinced the Phillies he was ready to go straight to a rehab assignment rather than doing any simulated games first.

There’s no official timetable for his return from the disabled list yet–and the Phillies tend to be less than forthcoming about such things anyway–but barring a setback Halladay could rejoin the rotation by the end of the month.

    Mark my words, the Phillies WILL make the playoffs this year.. Feel free to reply and comment on how dumb and ignorant I sound, but regardless if you agree or not, I just have this feeling that it’s all going to come together for them after the all-star break… They don’t call them the Phightin’ Phils for absolutely no reason. And Godspeed Phillies, Godspeed. You’re going to need it.

      I don’t think you are dumb or ignorant, I just respectfully disagree. I think they have dug too big a hole to climb out of, and they are getting too old.
