LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Chace Numata rose from his crouch and approached the mound at FirstEnergy Park. There is little a 21-year-old catcher can say to one of the best pitchers of this generation, yet Numata tried. He patted Roy Halladay on the lower back. Halladay threw eight straight balls in the fourth inning of a dull rehab start with single-A Lakewood. He resembled the drained pitcher seen earlier in 2013, before a surgeon cut into his right shoulder. That was three months ago. Halladay could not command his arsenal.

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora will not be joining the band on its next tour, which begins tonight in New Orleans, because he's entering rehab. Spokesman for the band said he "recently has been drinking too much and wants to get his life together. " Sambora is missing out on some choice scratch. Bon Jovi was the biggest touring act of last year, raking in a whopping $201 million in ticket sales. Hey, Jon Bon Jovi , Lady Tattle is sure she can feather her hair in a Sambora-esque manner if you're looking for a replacement.

Phillies righthander Curt Schilling pitched five shutout innings yesterday at Jack Murphy Stadium. The fact that the stands were empty, of course, means little here. But the fact the batting cage was up and the lineup Schilling faced consisted solely of Randy Ready and Tony Longmire confirmed that, yes, it was only a simulated game. Only a simulated game. And, in its own way, the biggest game Schilling had pitched since his electrifying performance in Game 5 of the 1993 World Series.

Phillies righthander Vicente Padilla had been scheduled to return to the Phillies rotation on Friday in Boston. If everything went well last night in Moosic, Pa., that is. It appears it didn't. Padilla, who has been on the disabled list since May 30 with tendinitis in his right biceps, made a rehab start for triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but left the game after just 33 pitches with elbow soreness. He will be evaluated today. There was no other information available, and it was not clear how the soreness might affect his return.

Phoenix Suns forward Charles Barkley said critics of his summer work ethic are off base and there is no reason for him to apologize for having some fun while spending the offseason in Philadelphia. Barkley, who thought about retiring all of last season because of chronic back trouble, said he worked hard in the offseason, but also had some fun. "I didn't neglect my rehab," Barkley said yesterday. "I told them I was going to Philadelphia and do it, and that was the final decision.

At first it seemed like a great way to promote low- and moderate-income housing: Float millions of dollars in bonds, use the money to make low-interest loans to small private developers and community non-profit groups, then make sure they keep the rents low, from $250 to $350 for a two-bedroom apartment. The goal: to rehab 1,000 properties of one to four units within three years. But 14 months later the official in charge of the Redevelopment Authority's $35 million Small Rental Properties Program admits, "I had no idea it was so complicated.

ATLANTA - Yet another hitless night Monday led Ryne Sandberg to omit Chase Utley's name from his Tuesday lineup card. The Phillies manager said there is "a pretty good possibility" that the struggling second baseman will sit Wednesday, too, giving him a three-day "mental break" ahead of Friday's series opener against the Mets. "As much mental work and effort and everything that Chase puts into a daily routine of his and not having any luck along with it," Sandberg said before the game against the Braves, "that's the way that I'm leaning right now. " A prolonged slump to begin the season has Utley hitting .103 with an on-base-plus-slugging percentage of just .389.

ATLANTA - While he rehabilitated from the Tommy John surgery that ended his 2013 season after just two starts, Chad Billingsley said he could somewhat envision the day of his return to the mound. But when he tore his flexor tendon while he was on the comeback trail, Billingsley questioned whether he would ever get back. "And here I am right now," he said with a big smile Monday afternoon at Turner Field, "taking the field [Tuesday] and pitching on a big-league mound. " More than two years since his last major-league start, Billingsley will officially complete his long road back from consecutive elbow surgeries Tuesday night against the Braves.

ST. LOUIS - David Buchanan faced 21 batters Thursday in a 9-3 Phillies loss to the Cardinals, and 11 of them reached base. The second-year righthander left Busch Stadium with the worst rate of combined walks and hits per innings pitched (1.91) among 131 qualified major-league starters. "I want my team to win a game that I pitch in," he said. "I'm not looking at my record. I want my team to win when I pitch in a ball game. I don't care how it happens. [I'm] 0 for 5 right now. But I want my team to be confident when I take that mound.

ALLENTOWN - The last group of IronPigs fans made their way around the infield's warning track, where players lined up on the grass and waited to pose with fans on team photo night, and the PA announcer called out a warning of 3 minutes remaining in the photo session. The line in front of Domonic Brown was still a few families deep. The 27-year-old outfielder was included on the Major League All-Star ballot released yesterday - he played in the 2013 All-Game Game - but he has yet to play in a regular-season game for the Phillies this year.

ST. LOUIS - The Phillies have not determined how many games Domonic Brown will spend in triple A before he is recalled. Manager Ryne Sandberg said the length of Brown's stay with Lehigh Valley will hinge on when the rightfielder shows he's ready to help the major-league club. "It's really for his benefit," Sandberg said, "to really work on some things and to get right. " Brown, 27, was optioned to triple A on Tuesday upon his activation from the 15-day disabled list. He had spent the last week and a half with the IronPigs on a rehab assignment but struggled at the plate.

ST. LOUIS - Outside the home dugout at Busch Stadium yesterday afternoon, minutes before the Cardinals took batting practice, a herd of reporters gathered. General manager John Mozeliak announced that longtime ace Adam Wainwright had a complete tear of his left Achilles' and would miss the remainder of the season. Across the way, inside the visiting clubhouse, Ryan Howard felt for his fellow competitor. "You never want to see anyone go down with injury, especially one like that," Howard said.

THE RETURN of Domonic Brown from the disabled list could hasten the end of the Grady Sizemore era in Philadelphia. The 32-year-old outfielder entered yesterday hitting .133 (4-for-30) with a double, one walk and five strikeouts, numbers that were similar to his production during spring training. The Phillies gave Sizemore $2 million guaranteed to re-sign with the club early in the offseason, but it's hard to come up with a reason why he shouldn't be the odd man out if the Phillies decide to add Brown to the active roster by Wednesday, when his 20-day rehab assignment for an Achilles' tendon injury is set to expire.

Much attention has been paid to the early-season struggles of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. The Phillies' third-longest tenured player also has experienced a slow start to the season at the plate. Carlos Ruiz entered Saturday's game against the Braves with eight hits - all singles - and just one RBI in 42 at-bats. The veteran catcher leads the Phillies in walks (six) but has scored only once, the run that capped the team's 10-inning home win against the Nationals on April 11. Ruiz, 36, batted seventh for the second consecutive game Saturday.

Developer Brian O'Neill and local officials are discussing alternate sites for an addiction treatment center he has proposed near Haddonfield Memorial High School. With public opposition deepening by the day, the borough hopes to figure out how to buy the 19-acre property where O'Neill wants to build from Bancroft, a private school for special-needs students. I'm told the Camden County Improvement Authority has identified several potential sites elsewhere in the county.

Developer J. Brian O'Neill plans to provide details at a community meeting Wednesday about the drug and alcohol treatment center he intends to create on the Bancroft campus in Haddonfield. The proposed facility, which would be near J. Fithian Tatem Elementary and next to Haddonfield Memorial High School, has drawn vocal public concern and opposition since being disclosed about a month ago. O'Neill, who hopes to operate 15 Recovery Centers of America between Boston and Annapolis, said he was undeterred by the Haddonfield response.
