Some updates:

Quote:
Roy Halladay will make an official minor-league rehabilitation start Thursday for the Phillies’ Gulf Coast League team, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Monday.

If all goes well in that start, Halladay will make another minor-league start five days later. If he checks out fine after that one, he could return to the Phillies’ rotation in the final week of August.

Ryan Howard is recovering from knee surgery in Florida. He has not yet begun to swing a bat, and Amaro is uncertain whether he will play again this season.

“I have no idea when or if he is going to be back this year,” Amaro said. “If he’s 100 percent and doing baseball activities, it’s possible. But there’s no reason to rush him back.”

Working with Phillies injury-rehab staff, Howard has lost “15 to 20 pounds,” Amaro said.

In other news, outfielder Laynce Nix, who was designated for assignment last week, cleared waivers and declined assignment to Triple A. He has been released.
