Roy Halladay’s return to the Philadelphia Phillies is uncertain after undergoing surgery. The Phillies right hander had a 8.65 ERA on the season prior to the surgery.

Halladay had a bone spur in his shoulder removed and his torn rotator cuff repaired on Wednesday. Halladay will rest for the next six to eight weeks before resuming a throwing program according to Mike Axisa of CBS Sports.

At the end of the season Halladay will become a free agent.

The Phillies are also without pitcher John Lannan who will also miss six to eight weeks with a quad strain near his knee. On Wednesday the team signed veteran pitcher Carlos Zambrano to a minor league deal.

At 19-22 and only 3.5 games back, the Phillies are well without striking distance of the cooling Atlanta Braves.
