Roy Halladay, less than four months removed from shoulder surgery, opened a laptop in an empty locker stall next to his inside the Phillies clubhouse. There was no data set or scouting report to prepare him Wednesday for his third postoperative start. Still, he stared at the screen. This is territory few pitchers, even an indefatigable worker like Halladay, ever encounter. The beginning of Halladay's night in a 3-2 Phillies loss to Washington was humbling, sad, and miraculous all at once.

ROY HALLADAY, who walked three batters in a game only four times in his first 65 starts with the Phillies, issued walks to three of the first five batters he faced last night. Halladay, who racked up 61 complete games in 269 starts from 2003 through 2011, thanks to his incomparable efficiency and control, threw more balls than strikes in a 29-pitch first inning against the Nationals. Ten batters into the game, Halladay had given free passes to half of the Nationals he faced by way of a walk or a hit batter.

CHICAGO - Greatness brought to its knees is one of the most difficult things to watch in professional sports. It can be especially cruel when it happens with a swiftness that makes you wonder how yesterday got so far behind us. Visions of Roy Halladay's perfect game down in Miami and his postseason no-hitter against the Reds at Citizens Bank Park are still fresh in our memories. The mystical arm that provided those unforgettable moments, however, appears to be gone forever. The Phillies will spend September observing Halladay's work as he attempts to return from the mid-May shoulder surgery that he said his surgeon told him "could turn back the clock two or three years.

CHICAGO - With the dog days of 2013 in full bark, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro made his first significant move for 2014. The Phillies signed free-agent Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez to a 3-year, $12 million contract with a club/vesting option for 2017. Amaro said the club expects Gonzalez to be in the starting rotation next year. His scouts project his ceiling to be as No. 2 to 3 quality. Assuming Gonzalez wins that spot, he would join lefthanders Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee. Kyle Kendrick is arbitration-eligible after the season and Roy Halladay is headed for free agency.

CHICAGO - It wasn't the heat this time for Roy Halladay, it was the humidity. The Phillies pitcher slogged through five innings, hitting two Cubs batters and sailing a fastball behind another as the Phillies dug themselves a five-run deficit. But then Kevin Frandsen came off the bench to provide a spark and help the Phillies rally to a 6-5 win at sun-soaked Wrigley Field. "For me, the heat wasn't a factor," Halladay said. "The only factor was later in the game, all the sweat was causing the ball to slip more than it was early on. I wasn't getting tired.

CHICAGO - Two former stars took center stage on Friday afternoon at the National League's oldest ballpark. Ryne Sandberg, the Phillies interim manager who spent most of his Hall of Fame career thrilling the masses at Wrigley Field, returned home and received the red-carpet treatment seldom afforded an opposing figure here. Most in the crowd stood and applauded as Sandberg, in a road gray Phillies uniform with that familiar No. 23, emerged from the visiting dugout to exchange his lineup card at home plate.

TWENTY-FOUR hours after sitting in front of television cameras to talk about an elbow injury that would shut him down for the remainder of the season, and one that could put 2014 in jeopardy, too, New York Mets rookie Matt Harvey sent out a curious tweet. "Thank you everyone for the kind words and support," Harvey wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday. "I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for April 1. " Where did the optimistic turn come from? Harvey, who has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, had a talk with Doc. Not a physician or surgeon experienced in arm injuries, but Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay.

ROY HALLADAY'S second major league start 3 months after shoulder surgery is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon against the Cubs. Once again he will have the slight advantage of facing a watered down major league lineup. But If he exhibits the same control of his pitches as he did in Sunday afternoon's start against Arizona, he is again likely to post encouraging numbers and fuel what is shaping up as a lively civic debate: Should the Phillies try to re-sign the man who gave them a discount during his peak years?

A LITTLE BIT of run support was all the Doc had ordered. Roy Halladay returned to a big-league mound a bit earlier than expected as he joined the Phillies following a historic 18-inning loss Saturday night in which yesterday's scheduled starter was used in relief. Halladay had been scheduled to make a rehab start yesterday at Double A Reading. The two-time Cy Young Award winner outpitched Arizona ace lefthander Patrick Corbin in the Phillies' 9-5 victory yesterday afternoon. Halladay walked off the field after a scoreless sixth inning to his second standing ovation of the afternoon, his pitch count at 94. The 36-year-old's day was done after holding the Diamondbacks to two runs on four hits and two walks, with two strikeouts.

He was not overpowering and needed some great defense, including a home run-saving catch, but overall, Roy Halladay made a successful return to a major-league mound on Sunday. Making his first Phillies appearance since May 5, Halladay allowed two runs in six innings during a 9-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Citizens Bank Park. The two-time Cy Young Award winner threw 94 pitches, 55 for strikes, with a fastball in the high 80s for much of the day. Halladay, who underwent shoulder surgery on May 15, surrendered four hits while striking out two and walking two. "I feel like I am getting stronger and I look forward to continuing to build," said Halladay, 36. Halladay originally was supposed to make his third minor-league rehabilitation start Sunday at Reading.
