CSNPhilly.com’s Jim Salisbury has the scoop:
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.
