Roy Halladay will make next rehab start at Double-A

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.

    I’m impressed that he is even pitching. I had rotator cuff surgery the day before Roy, and I can just now get into a throwing motion, much less actually throw a baseball. But then I’m 58 and never could throw 87.

      Wow. Insightful.

    If he shows that he can pitch some one will give him a few million.

    Only seriously intrested people will be warmly welcomed,Thanks,,
    you have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem. I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already.
    let me know if you need more here you go… “~ http://xurl.es/jcyjo

    With the minor league season about to end for the year, where would that leave Halladay?

    The writer seems to have a problem with them moving him from low a to triple a, which to me seems like very petty, nit-picking.

    With so much to complain about with the Phillies do writers really need to make stupid little things like this part of the discussion??
