Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay, out since May 29 because of strained right shoulder, hopes to return after the All-Star break, MLB.com reportred Sunday.
He pitched on flat ground on Sunday, and on Friday he threw 33 pitches in his first bullpen session since going on the disabled list.
"I don't know exactly where I'm going to fall during the break, but I'd like to be back as soon after that as I can," Halladay said, according to MLB.com. "Like I said, this whole process we've been going really day to day, so there's really not [a set date]. Everything's gone really good, so it's the next stop and go from there. I think we'll keep going day to day. I feel good, I haven't been sore yet, so we'll keep advancing it and get as close to getting in a game as I can."
Halladay went 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 72 1/3 innings and 11 starts.
