KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Roy Halladay's return to the Phillies rotation could be a mere week away.

Halladay will make a rehab start for single-A Clearwater on Thursday at Bright House Field. He has not pitched in a game since May 27, when he left with a right lat muscle strain.

If all goes well with Clearwater, Halladay will likely start Tuesday in Los Angeles, the fifth game after the all-star break. That would give him three starts before the July 31 trade deadline.

This will be Halladay's first appearance in the minors since 2001, when he began the season there as banishment for a disastrous stint in the majors with Toronto.
