Talkin' Phils with Little Chase (8-11-13)

Hi everybody,

I haven't done one of these in a very long time.  I have a few quick updates to report so here goes:

Roy Halladay:

Doc threw 75 pitches in a simulated game on Saturday in Clearwater, FL.  By all accounts, he looked good.  Halladay is scheduled to throw a bullpen session tomorrow and if it goes well, he will pitch a minor league rehab game on Thursday.  That means we could see Doc return to the big leagues by early September.  Yay!

Looking forward to seeing this again...

Laynce Nix & Demon Young:

Earlier this week, Laynce Nix & Delmon Young were designated for assignment to make room on the roster for the returning Domonic Brown and new Phillies outfielder Casper Wells.  Here are the final 2013 stats for Nix and Young:

Laynce Nix:

Batting Average = .180
RBIs = 7
Home Runs = 2
Runs Scored = 11
Walks = 8
Stolen Bases = 1
Strike Outs = 44

Delmon Young:

Batting Average = .261
RBIs = 31
Home Runs = 8
Runs Scored = 22
Walks = 14
Stolen Bases = 0
Strike Outs = 69

I wish Nix and Young all the best.  I really don't know much about Casper Wells but I do hope he isn't annoying like another Casper that I know.

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
