Roy Halladay to Pitch at Reading Sunday
Roy Halladay will make his next rehab start on Sunday with Double-A Reading.
Halladay allowed two runs (one earned) over six innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Class A Lakewood. He gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out four. He threw 52 out of 90 pitches for strikes and topped out at 89 mph on the radar gun.
"I feel good," said Halladay. "I haven't had a lot of soreness the day after I pitch. I really think things are coming along well. I wanted to throw 100 pitches, but they had me scheduled for 90. When I get back is not in my control. It's their call, but I'm confident."
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro previously said that Halladay could be ready to come off the disabled list after just two rehab starts, but it's unclear what the next step will be after this start for Lakewood.
In his first start, pitching for the Phillies' affiliate in the Gulf Coast League, Halladay tossed a total of 87 pitches, yielding six hits and three walks while fanning four.
