Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Roy Halladay underwent successful right shoulder surgery Wednesday and the Philadelphia Phillies released a statement Thursday regarding his status.

Halladay hopes to pitch again this year.

"He had an arthroscopic evaluation and underwent debridement of his labrum and rotator cuff as well as removal of an inflamed bursa," Phillies director of medical services Michael G. Ciccotti said. "He'll begin a progressive rehabilitation program and if all goes well, he may possibly begin a throwing program in 6-8 weeks."

Over seven outings this season, the two-time Cy Young Award winner Halladay, who turned 36 on Tuesday, is 2-4 with an 8.65 ERA.
