The Philadelphia Phillies made official on Sunday what had been suspected on Saturday - that Roy Halladay will be their starting pitcher on Tuesday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Halladay has been on the disabled list since May 28 with a right lat strain and has not pitched since May 27. Halladay, 35, made a rehab start on Thursday with the Class A Fort Myers Miracle. He allowed one earned run and three hits in three innings of work. He threw 28 pitches in a bullpen session on Saturday, and said afterward he felt fine, leading to speculation that his return was imminent. A two-time Cy Young winner, Halladay is just 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts this season.
BEST OF MAXIM
Roy Halladay will need to lead the Phillies to 7 out of 10 wins for the rest of the season for the Phils to have a shot at the playoffs. I'd be sweating, too, Roy. Photo: AP

Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre has never been a power hitter in his career. With just 17 career home runs in his 13-year career, Pierre has always been noted as a singles hitter and speed demon on the base paths. Pierre played at the height of his career during the steroid era of baseball. In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Pierre talked about how he has played the...

Hard to not see this one coming.
According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, Phillies centerfielder Shane Victorino has a lot of teams who have interest in his services. According to him, Victorino may be the first to go this season.
Something that should grab your attention: A high-ranking executive with one club predicted that Victorino will be the first of the big-name players...
DENVER - Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels is facing an uncertain future. His struggling team might trade him by the July 31 deadline. Or by then, they might re-sign Hamels to a lucrative contract to keep him from becoming a free agent. Then again, Hamels might leave as a free agent after the season, once he sizes up his market. With business matters swirling about him, Hamels...

The Phillies and Dodgers have a long history of key meetings with each other. The one they're about to play in Los Angeles is interesting not because of its meaning in the standings, but because of the pending trade deadlines and how the two teams matchup.
