Roy Halladay Injury Update: Phillies Pitcher To Return From DL, Start Tuesday

For almost two months the Philadelphia Phillies have been without one of their more effective and constant weapons -- starting pitcher Roy Halladay. All that changes Tuesday, when Halladay is set to come off the disable list and make his first start since May 27. Halladay has been recovering from a latissimus dorsi strain that he suffered in an outing against the St. Louis Cardinals.

In his first start back, Halladay will be asked to shutdown one of the National League's toughest lineups, as he will start against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Philly ace is expected to oppose Nathan Eovald, who's 1-5 with a 4.21 ERA.

Before his injury, Halladay was 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA. For the Phillies to get back into the postseason race, the Philly ace will probably need to be a bit better than that.
