DENVER -- Unless something unexpected happens, right-hander Roy Halladay is set to start Tuesday against the Dodgers, Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee confirmed Saturday. "As of right now," Dubee said of Halladay's projected start after watching him throw 30 pitches with his fastball and cut-fastball in a bullpen session at Coors Field. Halladay, who couldn't offer much to reporters because he had yet to talk to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., said the session went fine.
"I felt good," Halladay said. Halladay has been on the disabled list since May 28 with a right latissimus dorsi strain. "He looked fine," Dubee said. "Some rust, some inconsistencies. But arm-wise, he's feeling a lot better than he has in a long time. He's getting back to getting on the mound." The Phillies will have Halladay on a pitch limit Tuesday, but Dubee declined to say how many pitches the two-time Cy Young winner will have to work with.
