Roy Halladay's status for Thursday's game is still up in the air after days of speculation.

Both Manuel and pitching coach Rich Dubee said Tuesday Halladay's right-shoulder ails are not structural but more related to spasms. Essentially, nothing is broken or in danger of causing long-term effects to his arm.

But they are being cautious with the 35-year-old ace. Halladay will throw a bullpen Wednesday and the coaching staff will decide from there whether Halladay can pitch the rest of the season. Dubee said if Halladay feels OK, he'll likely pitch Saturday.
