It has just been announced that Roy Halladay will make his first start for the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday afternoon since early May. Halladay has been on the disabled list since the middle of May recovering from surgery because of shoulder issues. He has just been activated from the 60-day disabled list to start this afternoon.
Halladay, who is 36 years old, had a 2-4 record in seven starts with a 8.65 ERA in just 34 and 1/3 innings this year. He had been pitching through injury since the beginning, and was finally shut down in mid-May. His last start was on May 5th.
Halladay is being activated partially because the Phillies participated in a grueling seven hour, 18-inning game Saturday night which they lost to the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. In the game, they were forced to use Tyler Cloyd, who was supposed to be the starter today. Instead, Halladay will get the start for the Phillies. Since he has had two rehab starts that have lasted six innings, it is not expected that he will be on a regulated pitch count on Sunday.
With Hallday's activation, Tyler Cloyd and reliever Luis Garcia have been sent down to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Reliever JC Ramirez has also been called up along with Halladay.
