Roy Halladay will return Tuesday

Roy Halladay has received clearance to come off the disabled list and start for the Phillies on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.

“I feel comfortable that he’s ready,” pitching coach Rich Dubee said after watching Halladay throw in the bullpen at Coors Field on Saturday afternoon.

Halladay has been on the disabled list since late May with a strained right lat muscle. He threw all his pitches during Saturday’s bullpen session, and says he feels great after also getting therapy recently for a minor shoulder ailment.

The 35-year-old right-hander fanned four and allowed just one (unearned) run in three innings Thursday in a start at Class A Clearwater. It was his only rehab appearance, but he threw 70 pitches in all and the Phillies believe he can go 80 on Tuesday against the Dodgers. 80 pitches of Roy Halladay is a useful thing.

    Sure as hell beat 80 pitches by KK….although KK does have a 14+ inning scoreless streak going.

    Are they showcasing for a trade?

      Don’t be so sure. Doc forced the trade from Toronto because he wanted a chance to be with a playoff team. Going forward, the Phillies need some rebuilding before they contend.

    Uhhh…no. Halladay isn’t going anywhere.

      Unfortunately for the Phans, it is the Phillies that are not going anywhere. The team appears to have gotten old rather quickly.

    Minor shoulder ailment? Uh-oh. Remember that.

    That loss to St.louis not only ended their season last year but also this year.I just think these guys still havnt gotten over that disappointment

      Nonsense. They haven’t gotten over having a debacle in the bullpen.

    Great, maybe they’ll go .500 the rest of the season.
