Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay could make a rehab start Thursday with the Clearwater Threshers, the team's website reports.
Halladay, who has been on the disabled list since May 29 because of a shoulder strain, was slated to travel to Florida after the Phillies' loss to the Atlanta Braves this past Sunday. The right-hander is scheduled to throw his fourth bullpen session Tuesday in Clearwater and, if that goes well, he would make a rehab start with the Class A Threshers on Thursday, the Phillies' website reports.
The Threshers host the Fort Myers Miracle at 7 p.m. Thursday at , 601 N. Old Coachman Road.
Halladay isn't the first injured Phillies superstar to rehab in Clearwater this year. Second baseman in mid-June as he mended from a knee injury, and first baseman Ryan Howard worked out at the minor league affiliate's complex earlier this spring following surgery on his left Achilles' tendon.
The Phillies are 37-50 and last in the National League East at the All-Star break.
