Those Fightin’ Phils continue to get healthier.

According to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, Roy Halladay threw his second bullpen session since landing on the disabled list Tuesday at Citi Field.

He felt no abnormal discomfort during or after the workout and is on pace to return to Philadelphia’s starting rotation shortly after the All-Star break.

The Phillies seem comfortable with the idea of allowing Halladay to skip a minor league rehab assignment, instead having him get stretched out in simulated games.

“Doc” had a 3.98 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 56/14 K/BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings before straining his right lat.
