Roy Halladay will make a minor league rehab start Thursday in Clearwater. Halladay has been sidelined with a strained right lat muscle since late May.
If he gets through the start without any issues, how they should rejoin the Phillies rotation next Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Halladay has pitched 72.1 innings this season, to an ERA of 3.98. Halladay has suffered through some decreased velocity this season.
If the Phillies can’t turn around their season quickly after the all star break, you can look for them to be very active in the trade market, with the trade deadline approaching July 31
It’s official. Halladay rehab assignment starts Thursday in Clearwater.
