Roy Halladay got knocked around while throwing in the mid-80s last week and then exited his follow-up start Sunday after just one inning because of the flu, but he’s now slated to pitch Saturday in a minor-league game.
Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that Halladay threw his normal between-starts bullpen session today without any problems, but he has lost about 10 pounds from the illness.
According to Salisbury the plan is for Halladay to throw around 75 pitches Saturday and then throw around 90 pitches in his final spring training start, at which point he’d be ready for the regular season.
