07:18 AM ET 08.13 | Since his shoulder surgery on May 15, the clock has been ticking for Roy Halladay. There's at least a chance [Halladay] could make his return to the Phillies rotation in less than two weeks. On Monday at Turner Field, Phils general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Halladay will begin an official rehab assignment when he starts a game for the Gulf Coast League Phillies on Thursday. Halladay threw a bullpen session on Monday, two days after facing hitters for the first time since May in a simulated game in Clearwater. Halladay is expected to throw between 70 and 80 pitches on Thursday. His rapid rehab could be nearing a finish line. ... So he could return before the end of August? "A lot of that depends on how he feels."

Rapid rehab? What's the rush? Oh yeah, contract year. One month to make hay. lol

Wait until after the 1st and call up time Ruben and don't take one of your future players off the 25 man roster just to showcase Halladay for other teams.

It's not about the money, it's about the respect.....everybody knows that.

This we do know-If he was signed for next year the Phillies would not pitch him again this year. so, draw your own conclusions.

Agree ,it is only 3weeks away. It makes no sense to Bring Halliday back 1 week before Sept roster expansion. Activate Halliday Sept 1. That would not cost the Phillies or the player an optionby sending a player out for 1 week. It is not like they need Halliday eligible for post season.

Perhaps Halladay will follow the trail paved by every other big name and head West... Halladay, Greinke, Kershaw sounds like a pretty nice rotation, and the Dodgers seem to still have money to go around.

I would sit him the rest of the season, but then again, who am I?

He wants to stay in Philly and thinks they can still compete, he also said he wasn't looking for more money - given this guy's mettle I think he's telling the truth.

Halliday will be 37 next May. Can he stay health? How long can or if he can be effective in rotation? Will Philly sign him or will some one else? Hallidays future is a big question.

I think the Phillies also want to see if he's worth extending a contract to for next season.

He'll sign an incentive deal if he really wants to remain in Philly.

The Phillies should trade him after his first start :-) :-)
