Philadelphia Phillies injured starting pitcher Roy Halladay is making some progress on his return. Halladay reported played catch with the Phillies pitching coach while a trainer looked on. Halladay made 30 throws from 60 feet and will play catch again on Sunday (via Jim Salisbury).
Halladay was given a six-to-eight week timetable for his return earlier in June when he was diagnosed with a strained lat in his shoulder. Halladay was pulled from the third inning of the Phillies game with the Cardinals on May 27 with shoulder soreness.
On the 2012 season, Halladay has made 11 starts. His record is 4-5 and he has a 3.98 ERA. Halladay struggled in his last three starts, giving up a combined five home runs and 12 earned runs in those starts. After beginning the season 3-0, Halladay has just one win in his last eight starts.
