Great news, everyone!
Roy Halladay will pitch a bullpen session on Tuesday in Clearwater and will aim to be back with the club by next week according to MLB's Todd Zolecki. The Phillies' ace righthander has missed the entire month of June with a lat strain on his right side, retroactive to May 27th against the Cardinals.
Halladay has been throwing bullpen sessions these past few weeks, despite being told he would not return until at least early August (6-8 weeks). Halladay was 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA this season and ever since Halladay went to the DL, the Phillies have fallen 12 games under the .500 mark.
The Phillies were three games over .500 before Halladay went to the DL, so hopefully with Halladay back to start the second half it won't be too late for the Phillies.
