MLB.com's Todd Zolecki caught up with Halladay, who has been tossing 60 feet for a few days now. Halladay says that he feels good but is a long ways off. Pitching coach Rich Dubee echoed Halladay saying he looked "very, very good" but saying he is a "long ways from pitching." Halladay is scheduled to see a doctor again on Thursday.
It is a great sign that Halladay looks and feels good. A return before the end of August is not likely and a return at all this season is not guaranteed but it is a good sign that he can toss without any issues.
Halladay, 36, is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP in seven starts for the Phillies this season.
