Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Roy Halladay underwent successful right
shoulder surgery Wednesday and the Philadelphia Phillies released a statement
Thursday regarding his status.
Halladay hopes to pitch again this year.
"He had an arthroscopic evaluation and underwent debridement of his labrum and
rotator cuff as well as removal of an inflamed bursa," Phillies director of
medical services Michael G. Ciccotti said. "He'll begin a progressive
rehabilitation program and if all goes well, he may possibly begin a throwing
program in 6-8 weeks."
Over seven outings this season, the two-time Cy Young Award winner Halladay,
who turned 36 on Tuesday, is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA.
