"Doc" may be getting another job with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The club has recently been talking to Roy Halladay about finding a role in the organization for the former Cy Young winner, according to MLB.com's Todd Zalecki, who cites a source.

Halladay last appeared at Philadelphia's camp in 2014 as a guest instructor. It's likely he'll again be at the club's complex with the rest of the team by the end of spring training, Zalecki reports.

Following 12 dominant seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays, Halladay was shipped to the Phillies in December 2009 in a blockbuster trade for then-prospects Travis d'Arnaud, Kyle Drabek, and Michael Taylor.

Halladay played his final four seasons in the City of Brotherly Love, and despite having to pitch in the National League for the first time in his career, he picked up where he'd left off with the Blue Jays. He posted a 2.44 ERA in 250 2/3 innings in his first season with Philadelphia and continued that performance into the playoffs, recording a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in his first-ever postseason start.
