Roy Halladay will throw a bullpen session Wednesday before a decision is made on his status for the final few days of the season, CSNPhilly.com’s Jim Salisbury reports.
Halladay’s turn is due to come Thursday, but the Phillies have already announced that rookie Tyler Cloyd will fill in then. If all goes well Wednesday, Halladay might make a start Saturday against the Marlins.
Halladay admitted to experiencing spasms in the back of his shoulder after getting lit up for seven runs by the Braves last Saturday. Given that they’ve fallen back in the wild card standings, one would think the Phillies would shut him down to protect their investment. However, Halladay would resist such a move if he feels he’s healthy.
“Roy wants to pitch,” manager Charlie Manuel said. “If it’s important to him, I agree with that. I want to see my guys play. But if he’s hurt, I don’t want to see him out there. We’ll listen to the trainers and kind of go from there.”
