In the past Roy Halladay and the Phillies have downplayed his low velocity readings in spring training starts, but after today’s ugly outing in which he threw in the mid-80s and got knocked around manager Charlie Manuel and pitching coach Rich Dubee were a little more open about things.
Yeah, it concerns me. But at the same time, I been in the game long enough to know that if there’s nothing wrong with him, you keep working with him. If he’s healthy and well and there’s nothing wrong with him, then he’s gotta get stretched out and everything.
Halladay has said he’s healthy, but described himself as “lethargic” after throwing too many pitches in bullpen sessions before today’s start.
