Roy Halladay To Have Surgery, Plans Return This Season. But Maybe Not Next.
All those obituaries for Roy Halladay’s career may have been premature.
While the Phillies won’t make a formal announcement until 2 p.m. on Roy Halladay’s status, manager Charlie Manuel hinted this morning that the news on Doc might be good.
When asked about Halladay on MLB Radio’s Power Alley show, Manuel said “I think he stands a great chance of pitching again this year.”
But there will be some time off first:
MLB–Roy Halladay confirmed Wednesday that he will have surgery on his shoulder. Should return before end of the season

RT @patgallen_975: So to recap: Halladay has partial rotator cuff tear, fraying of labrum, bone spurs in shoulder.
