And — altogether now! — it was successful:
Roy Halladay underwent successful arthroscopic surgery in Los Angeles on Wednesday and could begin a throwing program in six to eight weeks, the Phillies announced Thursday.
Well-known orthopedist, Dr. Neal ElAttrache, performed the surgery on Halladay. According to team physician Dr. Michael Ciccotti, Halladay could begin a throwing program in July.
If he’s throwing in July I suppose it’s theoretically possible he’s pitching this season. Guess it depends on whether the Braves and Nats continue their contest as to who wants to win the division least. So far it’s deadlocked, which is keeping the Phillies in it.
