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.

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.

CHASE UTLEY is not a candidate to move to a new team before Major League Baseball's trade deadline, which arrives a week from tomorrow, on July 31. He hasn't played in a game in a month while rehabbing from a right ankle injury, and he's been mired in a funk at the plate for more than a year. But during his current hiatus, Utley might have found a flaw in his swing that was related to his injury. If he returns within the next couple of weeks, and shows something offensively, Utley could potentially move to a new team before Sept.

Eli Kulp, one of America's most promising chefs, stepped into the quiet car of Amtrak Train 188 on May 12 and saw a new text message on his phone - a photograph. Kulp, who reinvented Fork and created High Street on Market in Philadelphia, has a 3-year-old son, Dylan, who loves trains. The boy loves Thomas the Tank Engine in particular, and Eli, like so many fathers, can name most of the Thomas & Friends characters. His favorite is Gordon, the big engine, since Eli is 6-foot-4, weighs 220 pounds, and is known in his Old City restaurants as "the Viking.

LAS VEGAS - If you look at the highs and lows of Pierre Jackson's short NBA life too quickly, you might get the bends. He was selected 42nd overall by the 76ers two years ago, only to be traded to the New Orleans Pelicans in the deal that got the Sixers Nerlens Noel. He spent the season in the NBA Development League, averaging 29.1 points a game. He then was brought back by the Sixers after his lone season and joined their Orlando Summer League team. Seven minutes into his first game, he ruptured his Achilles' tendon on a non-contact play.

ATLANTA - Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said he thinks injured righthanders Jerome Williams (hamstring) and Aaron Harang (plantar fasciitis) could go on rehab assignments just after the All-Star break and might pitch again in the majors before the July 31 trade deadline. Harang is still able to throw, Amaro said, so his comeback could require less pitching rehab. Amaro said veteran starter Chad Billingsley's struggles are predictable as the righthander figures out how to get big-league hitters out with altered weapons.

Whatever the disconnect between Earl Wolff and Chip Kelly over the safety's recovery from knee surgery, the only opinion that counts in terms of the player's future with the Eagles is the coach's. And right now, Kelly has made it quite clear that he believes Wolff should be practicing. "He's been cleared from Dr. [James] Andrews a couple weeks ago," Kelly said on Tuesday, "but it's what he can tolerate. " Wolff had a different interpretation. "He didn't clear me to come out here and be 100 percent," Wolff said of Andrews, the orthopedic surgeon who has been the go-to guy for pro athletes' injuries.

With a brace covering his twice surgically repaired left knee, Sam Bradford participated in individual passing drills with the other three Eagles quarterbacks during organized team activities Thursday. But when practice progressed to seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills, Bradford became a bystander. The presumed starting quarterback was a limited participant at the NovaCare Complex, as he has been all week. Coach Chip Kelly said that Bradford is "right on schedule" in his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

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.
