Halladay solid in his Class A start

CLEARWATER — Phillies RHP Roy Halladay, working his way back from a back strain, threw three innings for the Class A Clearwater Threshers on Thursday, giving up one unearned run on three hits against the Fort Myers Miracle at Bright House Field.

Halladay threw 43 of his 61 pitches for strikes in his rehab start, striking out four with no walks. After he came out of Clearwater's 4-3 victory in 12 innings, he threw in the bullpen for a bit and left without talking to the media.

There was no immediate word on his next start, but Halladay may next meet the Phillies in Colorado to throw a bullpen session.

Jay's hot bat nets three-year deal: Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion, enjoying a breakout season at the plate, signed a three-year deal that begins next season. The $27 million contract includes a $10 million club option for 2016. The 29-year-old is batting .295 with 23 homers and 58 RBIs. "We've really seen him grow as a player, grow as someone who quietly leads in the clubhouse," GM Alex Anthopoulos said.

More surgery for Met: RHP Dillon Gee is scheduled for right shoulder surgery today in St. Louis and likely will be out for the rest of the season. The Mets said Gee, who had a procedure earlier this week to break up a blood clot, will have surgery to replace a portion of damaged artery.

Reggie's regrets: Yankees special adviser Reggie Jackson says it was "inappropriate and unfair" for him to disparage Alex Rodriguez, Gary Carter and other big names in baseball and has been reaching out to apologize.

Giants: Investigators say there is not enough evidence to arrest 3B Pablo Sandoval for an alleged sexual assault at a hotel near Santa Cruz, Calif. No charges are expected.
