Injured Phillies starter Roy Halladay is getting closer and closer to a return to the team. CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury reported that the 36-year old right hander is beginning to throw off a mound and started this past weekend at Citi Field.
Halladay underwent shoulder surgery on May 15th. 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.
This is a good sign for the Phillies and I like to hear that a good guy like Halladay is on the mend. The team is hoping that Doc could return to the mound by September if everything goes well. If everything goes well for the Phillies, they will be playing meaningful games by the time Doc returns.
