Halladay, 36, made a rehab start last Thursday for the Gulf Coast Phillies where he went six innings allowing three runs on six hits with four strikeouts and three walks. Halladay threw 87 pitches in the start. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said that it is "conceivable" that Halladay could be back pitching for the Phillies after these two starts at the end of the month.
Halladay underwent shoulder surgery on May 15th and began throwing from a mound after the All-Star break. Before his surgery, Halladay was 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP in seven starts this season with the Phillies.
If for no other reason you love Halladay, you have to love the way the guy competes. Nobody can fault Halladay's efforts in his comeback and I really hope he is as healthy as his doctors claim he can be - that would be fun to watch again. Needless to say, a lot of eyes will be on Lakewood tonight.
