Not as a pitcher obviously. He retired, remember. But the Phillies do apparently have interest in Roy Halladay as an instructor of some sort.

Somewhat hidden in a note by Jim Salisbury about whether or not Charlie Manuel will return to the Philadelphia Phillies in a coaching role this coming season is a quick bit about Ruben Amaro having interest in Doc the teacher.

The Phillies would also like to see recently retired Roy Halladay stay in the organization. It’s possible that Halladay could work as an instructor in spring training.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen yet,” Amaro said. “I think he may have some interest. We have interest.”

Having Halladay around in hopes of his worth ethic rubbing off on some current players seems like reason enough alone to keep him around.

Salisbury's story has more on the Phils' hopes of Mike Adams returning to form.
