MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Toronto Blue Jays' ace Roy Halladay threw 65 pitches in a simulated game in Minnesota on Friday, continuing his comeback from an appendectomy that sent him to the disabled list two weeks ago.
Halladay said he felt good after throwing for the first time since the surgery. The 2003 AL Cy Young Award winner said he has no discomfort from the scar on his lower right abdomen.
The right-hander will gauge how he feels Saturday before setting up a throwing plan for the remainder of his rehabilitation. He's aiming to return within two weeks.
``For me, it's going to be more how my arm bounces back than my body,'' Halladay said.
One of nine players currently on the disabled list for the Blue Jays, Halladay is 4-2 with a 4.37 ERA in eight starts this season.
