• Ruben Amaro Jr. said Roy Halladay, who had surgery on his right shoulder in May, is up to long tossing from 90 feet, and could be throwing from 120 feet soon. Amaro was unsure when Halladay would throw off a mound.
• Left-handed reliever Jeremy Horst has made two Minor League rehab appearances since injuring his throwing elbow last month. Amaro said Horst will likely throw again Thursday and Friday, and he still needs to decide if Horst will rejoin the Phillies' roster when healthy. Horst had a 6.23 ERA in 28 appearances before the injury.
• Amaro said reliever Michael Stutes probably won't be able to throw off the mound for "a couple of weeks." The right-handed reliever went on the DL on June 23 with bicep tendonitis.
