Veteran right-hander Roy Halladay looked shaky in a rehab start Tuesday night with Low-A Lakewood, yielding seven hits and three walks in six sluggish innings while averaging just 87 mph with his fastball.
But the Phillies are going to bump him up a level anyway and let him continue his minor league rehab assignment this Sunday afternoon at Double-A Reading. This according to MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki.
Halladay underwent surgery on May 16 to repair a tear in his right rotator cuff and has not appeared in a major league game since May 5. If things don’t go well on Sunday, the impending free agent might be better off shutting it down and aiming for 100 percent health heading into spring training 2014. He had an 8.65 ERA over his first 34-plus innings this year.
