Club says Halladay is progressing well

LOS ANGELES -- The Phillies announced late Thursday night that Roy Halladay can step up his throwing program.

Halladay had surgery on his right shoulder in May, but after a visit with Dodgers physician Neal ElAttrache on Thursday the Phillies said Halladay is progressing well.

ElAttrache is pleased with Halladay's current program and strength, they said.

The Phillies have said there is a chance Halladay could pitch again this season, but late August seems to be the earliest he could be back.
