After having his shoulder cleaned out yesterday afternoon in California, the Phillies have already given fans a possible date for when Roy Halladay could begin working towards a return.
According to the team, Roy Halladay could begin throwing again in six to eight weeks, barring any setbacks. This information comes via ESPN.
And also according to the article, if Doc’s rehab remains on schedule, the Phillies could be looking at a mid-july return. But as Philadelphia fans found out the hard way this year with Andrew Bynum, the chances that there are no set-backs after surgery isn’t very good. The difference between Halladay and Bynum is that Halladay would kill to be on the mound, whereas Bynum would rather be killed than be on the court. So realistically speaking early August seems like a fair date to expect Doc back on the mound for the Phillies.
