As expected the Phillies have activated Roy Halladay from the disabled list after the two-time Cy Young winner missed the past seven weeks with a shoulder injury.

Halladay, who had a 3.98 ERA and 56/14 K/BB ratio in 72 innings before the injury, will start tonight against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. He tuned up for the return start by throwing three innings of one-run ball at Single-A last week, striking out four and walking none.

Returning after just one rehab appearance likely means Halladay will be on a pitch count initially.

    Good to have him back. Just a shame that the only goal at this point is a good 2nd half.

    But great to have the Doc again

      Man there has been a bizarre rash of thumbs down of late in here….What possible objection could could anyone have to “Good to have him back?”

      Just sayin’

        I guess some people don’t want to see Halladay back healthy. You can deduce the allegiance of these people.

        Most likely fans of other teams that have to bat against him.

        Good one, brother!

      I gave thumbs down to your second one just because you wrote “just sayin’. ” Reminds me of little girls text

      • delawarephilliesfan - Jul 17, 2012 at 7:09 PM

        Just so there is no confusion, the thumbs down you have here is not from me – I think a comment like that deserves to stand on its own

        Just so there is no confusion, I don’t really care about thumbs down. Let’s go Phillies….in 2013 I mean.

    Yep, still boned. Clean slate next year though…..and 2013 WS Champs, this time as the underdogs which will make it that much better.

    He would bring a lot of high end prospects in a trade.

    Doc isn’t going anywhere……he already stated he wants to finish his career as a Phillie. They’ll trade Cliff Lee before they get rid of Halladay. Which if they resign Hamels like they need to, they will during the Summer. It’s always great to get a pitcher like Doc back, if nothing more to have a great second half like Delaware said. They’ll bounce back next year without a doubt. People talking about blow the team up……for what?? They just need to retool, not rebuild. They still got good pitching and a good closer, they REALLY need 2 Bullpen arms inbetween the starting pitching and Pap. Hopefully trading Victorino gets something half decent back and hopefully Lee gets us almost ML ready guys, possibly a 3rd baseman…..we’ll see to my fellow Diehard Phillie’s fans!!

    couldn’t of picked a better team to return against.The Dodgers are just flat out awful right now.Kemp still needs to get back into his groove while the rest of them just aren’t hitting or fielding.

    The Phillies better beat these starting pitchers L.A. is putting out there. Barny Fife tonight with his 0-0 record and last nights starter was like 1-6. The Phillies have a lot of old guys whom get hurt a lot. Break up this squad and build again.
