Two weeks from today, the Phillies are hoping Roy Halladay will take the mound for the second game of the regular season at Turner Field against the Atlanta Braves.
Halladay's progress this spring has been slowed in the last 8 days, however.
First in getting knocked around against the Detroit Tigers in a 2 2/3 inning start that left him feeling "lethargic." Then, in his most recent start on Sunday, Halladay exited after one inning with a stomach illness.
But Halladay, who lost about 10 pounds in 2 days as a result of that illness, got back on the mound on Wednesday, a day when the rest of the Phillies had a scheduled day off. Halladay threw his regular, in-between starts bullpen session.
