Halladay feeling good after long tossing

Halladay feeling good after long tossing

|

SAN DIEGO -- Phillies right-hander Roy Halladay has been tossing a baseball about 60 feet for a few days now, and he said he's feeling good so far.

"Tossing," he said Monday at Petco Park. "That's the key word."

Throwing, he said, is something entirely different. But Halladay, who had right shoulder surgery in May, said, "It feels good."

The Phillies are hopeful Halladay, who will see a doctor again on Thursday, will pitch again before the end of the season, although a potential return probably will not come until late August at the earliest.

"It looks very, very good," Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said. "The arm action, he's able to get his arm back up very easily. No effort at all. Whereas before, because of the stuff that he had going on in his shoulder, he couldn't get it up on a consistent basis. But now his arm slot is fantastic and he's doing very, very well so far. He's a long ways from pitching, but everything so far is going according to plan."
