After a disappointing series loss to the New York Mets yesterday, Philadelphia Phillies fans were down in the dumps once again. But today, they got some encouraging news. When Roy Halladay was asked how he felt, he replied with just one word, and that one word was “good.”
Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said,
This is just the next phase. He did fine. He’s right on schedule. I’m not looking at velocity at all. I’m looking at his arm path and making sure he can get his arm up to where it needs to be. Ever since Day 1, it has been very encouraging because his range of motion has been phenomenal. His arm slot is closer to where it was in 2010. It’s probably a good eight to 12 inches higher.
If all continues to go well and Halladay is continues to make good progress, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said he hopes Doc can be back in the rotation by September.
