Roy Halladay, the Phillies ace, will be back in Philadelphia on Sunday, as he is starting for the Fightin' Phils. Halladay was scheduled to be pitching for Double-A Reading today, but the Phillies used Tyler Cloyd (original Sunday starter) in the 18 inning affair last night.
It'll be interesting to see how long Halladay will remain in the game, as the Phillies have a depleted bullpen, again from the 18 inning affair last night. He faces the Diamondbacks today.
Halladay is coming off a shoulder sugery that had him sidelined for quite a while. His velocity in his last start was in the high-80s, a good sign for Doc. In 7 starts, the Doctor is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA prior to his injury. He faces Patrick Corbin today.
