IN PROGRESS RECOVERY OF ROY HALLADAY
Mon, 11 Jun 2012 10:01 PM EDT

Roy Halladay is continuing his recovery from a shoulder injury as planned after a 2nd opinion confirmed the 1st diagnosis for the Philadelphia Phillies’ ace right-hander. Football betting lines

The 2-time Cy Young Award winner is still anticipated to miss between 6 to 8 weeks due to a strained latissimus dorsi muscle on the right side of his back. Halladay will be shut down for 3 weeks before he starts a throwing program. He went on the DL May 29.

“The important thing is that just understanding that a week could save me a month,” Halladay said last Wed. “As much as I would like to be back, I would like to ensure that when I am back, it isn’t something I should address later that it’s a hurdle that’s been passed and needn’t be something that reoccurs down the line. I recognize that and I’m going to be particularly wary of that.”

Halladay was 1st evaluated by Philadelphia Phillies team physician Michael Ciccotti. He also sought a 2nd opinion from Dr. David Altchek, the N.Y Mets’ team physician who specializes in shoulder injuries.

“It’s a matter of calming it down and strengthening everything around it,” Halladay expounded. “From my knowledge, I was never asked to see him at a later point. Once we calmed it down and got things comfortable, it wouldn’t be something we’d have to evaluate later.”

Halladay is 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts. He has pitched at least 220 innings in each one of the past 6 seasons, and 4 times led the league in innings. He was tied for the NL lead with 72 1/3 innings this year before he went on the DL.

There were reports in spring training that Halladay’s velocity was down, but the 35-year-old 8-time All-Star downplayed it.

“I think on occasions it was pretty similar. At times there had been doubtless 1 or 2 mph variation,” Halladay asserted. “I’m aware that the older you get you are going to need to be a little better at noticing the ball and changing speeds. I believe that’s part of the process of aging. I felt at times it was good. I felt at other times it wasn’t as good. I’ve felt like it is still there.

“I can spot when it doesn’t feel like it is coming out the right way. There were plenty of times this year when it felt like it was. There were also other times I felt just like all I had it just was not coming out the way in which it should. I feel just like it’s there. It’s such a case of timing and all that.”

Another pair of hurt Philadelphia Phillies, Ryan Howard and Chase Utley, both played in an extended spring training game on Wednesday, according to a report by a reports media.

Howard, who is recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon, didn’t run bases or play the field, according to the report. Chase Utley is working his way back from an injured knee.
