Phillies | More on Roy Halladay's first outing
Thu, 04 Apr 2013 12:15:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay's nine-strikeout, five-run performance in 3 1/3 innings has many people scratching their heads. One scout who saw Halladay's performance said it was an outing typical of a journeyman starting pitcher. Halladay clearly isn't the same pitcher he's been in the past. The nine strikeouts are somewhat deceiving, said a scout, "The strikeouts are a little bit deceiving. Those hitters could do just about whatever they wanted with him, really. They weren't overmatched. It wasn't like that. The Braves are going to swing and miss a lot." The same scout doesn't think Halladay has the stuff or the velocity to consistently challenge hitters anymore, either.
