Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay initially hoped to make two rehab starts then return to the big league club. After struggling in Lakewood in his second start, Halladay will make his next start at Double A Reading.
Prior to surgery to repair a tear in his rotator cuff, Halladay struggled to reach the velocity he had during his years as one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball. While he is still rebuilding arm strength, his average fastball speed of 87 MPH in his last start has raised concerns in the Phillies organization. Halladay once averaged 93-94 MPH.
Halladay will be a free agent at the end of the season and is eager to prove that he can return to form after the surgery.

Roy Halladay loves Charlie Manuel. But, all the same, the rehabbing pitcher says that it was time for a change in Philadelphia. Manuel was fired as manager of the Phillies on Friday, in a lot of ways putting an end to the team’s glory days surrounding its 2008 and 2009 World Series runs. Still, Halladay, who on Tuesday was pitching for the Low-A Lakewood BlueClaws, says that the...
The 2013 Phillies played their 48th player last night, Roger Bernadina, on pace to be the most “unique” group of Phillies since 1996, when the Fightins had 54 different players suit up for the club. By comparison, the 2012 Phillies played 49 players in an 81-81 effort while the five-time repeating NL East Champion squads averaged just 42.2 players and most of the numbers for...

The Philadelphia Phillies' top farm club on Tuesday offered a free funeral to an eastern Pennsylvania fan recently diagnosed with ALS.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs announced the winner of its funeral giveaway during a home game at Coca-Cola Park.
Steve Paul, 64, of Freemansburg got a standing ovation as he was wheeled onto the field and announced as the recipient of a funeral...
It was a nice winning streak while it lasted (a whole two games). The Colorado Rockies defeated the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 5-3 on Tuesday.
The Rockies got to Tyler Cloyd quickly. Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario homered off him in the first and third innings respectively. Cloyd lasted six innings, surrendering five earned runs. Cloyd settled down after the third...
One week ago today, Charlie Manuel managed his 1,416th regular-season game as the skipper of the Philadelphia Phillies. It was an unremarkable game in an unremarkable season, losing 6-3 to the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves. It was also Charlie Manuel’s last game as the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies. Just two days prior, Manuel won […]The post Charlie Manuel Deserved A...
Hooray, internet! Thanks, @AndrewJGillen
A day after Jim Salisbury of Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia reported that the Phillies were taking a look at outfielder Roger Bernadina, the Phillies signed Bernadina today. Bernadina will take the roster spot of Michael Martinez, who was optioned to AAA Lehigh Valley, reports Todd Zolecki. Bernadina was released by the...
A Phillies comeback win? Remember what that feels like? It seems like it’s been so long since we’ve seen one. Down a run going into the ninth inning, the game looked about over. But a leadoff double by Erik Kratz gave the Phillies life. Carlos Ruiz doubled in Kratz, and Michael Young finished the game with walkoff single.
Cliff Lee had his best outing in a while. It...
Cliff Lee is in a stretch that looks a lot like the start of his season last year. Aside from some hiccups, he's pitched fairly deep into most games and allows minimal damage but the fact that he allows any damage at all finds him in the loss or no...
